The unique music of the cooperative trio Longhand is making a stop at The Arts Station on May 19.

Longhand is comprised of Skye Brooks on drums, guitar and vocals, Russell Sholberg on bass and saw, and Tony Wilson on guitar and harmonica.

The three members of the trio are members of the following ensembles: The Inhabitants, Veda Hille, Peggy Lee Band, and Pugs and Crows to name a few.

Longhand has a varied repertoire ranging from high-energy free improv to melancholy tunes with beautiful melodies.

The trio explores a wide range of sonic possibilities with varied instrumental configurations like classic guitar trios to harmonica saw and percussion, or harmonica vocals and bass.

Along with original music, Longhand offers their unique interpretations of jazz, blues and classic Motown tunes. Tickets available at the door.
