As the Strawbs move gracefully into their fifth decade of making music, it is still difficult to categorize the unique sound that has made them Britain’s most successful international progressive folk-rock band. The Acoustic Strawbs, as always, are led be founder, songwriter, guitarist and singer David Cousins, along with longtime mates Dave Lambert and Chas Cronk.
David Cousins has been described by the influential All Music Guide as: "the most talented Dylan-influenced songwriter to come out of England. Strawbs are often compared to progressive rock bands Moody Blues, King Crimson and Yes (legendary keyboardist Rick Wakeman played in the Strawbs and in Yes).
The live acoustic shows will perfectly complement the Strawbs’ distinctive mix of humor, orchestral stylings and harmonic bliss the band is known for. The set list includes favorites from the entire 45-year history of the band, including "Lemon Pie," "Lay Down," and "Hero and Heroine." Half the fun of attending a Strawbs concert is David Cousins’ witty and intelligent story telling. For more information about the group, visit http://www.strawbs.co.uk
Wesley Stace is a folk/pop singer-songwriter and author who goes by the stage name John Wesley Harding. Under his real name, he has written three novels. He was born in Hastings, East Sussex, England. His given name, Wesley, comes from John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, who preached one of his last sermons in the town where Harding was born. His stage name is the same as the Bob Dylan 1967 album (and song) John Wesley Harding, for which he misspelled the outlaw John Wesley Hardin's name, adding a final 'g'.
