Holy Joe’s Coral Island Medicine Show combines murder ballads and death-ditties, love songs and eulogies, songs about drifters, grifters, hobos and killers; featuring a ramshackle cast. Including the likes of Skelly and Granddad, The Great Muriarty and Glaswegian singer Rianne Downey. A love letter to the tradition of the death disc and murder ballad, from Stack-o-Lee to Skeleton Key, and everything in between, The Coral returns to cement their legendary status in British music.
