Acoustic Strawbs

Acoustic Strawbs are David Cousins, Dave Lambert, and Chas Cronk, the classic 1970s line-up of Britain’s most successful international folk-rock band, and who play regularly to packed, appreciative, live music venues across the world.

In the early 1970s Strawbs scored chart success in Britain with huge albums such as Grave New World and Bursting At The Seams. From the mid-1970s onwards, Strawbs toured with the likes of Santana, Peter Frampton, The Eagles, REO Speedwagon, Joe Walsh, Blue Oyster Cult, King Crimson, and Frank Zappa.

‘A band that performs their old material with passion and precision… they have broken new ground by harnessing the power of their electric incarnation in an acoustic setting’ ~ Chicago Tribune
