Featuring the legendary folk songs that fuel the band’s passion for the genre, alongside thrilling original offerings, Smoke & Oakum is a treasure chest, each song a jewel collected along the way. Representing and paying homage to protest singers and folk luminaries through the years, The Longest Johns shine new light through old windows with songs that hold a torch up to the truth.

Describing the energy behind their irresistible sound, the band explain, “The experience of singing these songs in a group is very similar to people dancing at a club. Whether or not you’ve heard the song before, you innately know what to do and feel part of something bigger than yourself. It’s as if something is missing, until you join in.” – The Longest Johns.
