STRAWBS (full electric band)
â€œBrilliant.â€Â Â â€œSpellbinding.â€Â Â â€œOriginal.â€Â Â â€œPassionate.â€Â Â These are words that respected music journalists have used to describeÂ StrawbsÂ liveâ€¦today.
With five decades of colorful history behind them,Â StrawbsÂ evolved from 1960s British Folk Movement roots to a powerful and enduring force in progressive rock music.Â Â Led by the charismatic Dave Cousins, who has been called the most talented Dylan-influenced songwriter to come out of England,Â Strawbsâ€™Â dynamic performances, marked by impassioned vocals, tight harmonies, and precise instrumentation are exciting, lush and timeless.
With Cousins at the forefront (vocals, guitar, dulcimer and banjo), Chas Cronk on bass, Dave Lambert (lead guitar and vocals), and Tony Fernandez on drums, todayâ€™s StrawbsÂ look very similar to those who brought us some of our favorite classic rock albums, including the iconicÂ Hero & HeroineÂ (ranked byÂ Rolling Stone MagazineÂ in 2015 as one of the top 50 progressive rock albums of all time).Â Â Â New to this veteran StrawbsÂ line-upâ€”a line-up that has through the bandâ€™s existence included music legends Sandy Denny, Rick Wakeman and Blue Weaverâ€” is Dave Bainbridge, a keyboard virtuoso who has mesmerized audiences across Europe and North America while performing with his Celtic folk-rock band Iona.
