England’s Strawbs have a long and storied history going back more than 50 years. Dave Cousins is fond of telling the story of how his new band, The Strawberry Hill Boys, once did a six week residency in London with another upstart group. The other band was called The Rolling Stones. The Strawbs are as busy as ever and have no plans on sailing off into the sunset. In 2018, however, the band will mount their final full electric tour of Canada. The line-up will include original members Dave Cousins, Dave Lambert, Chas Cronk and Tony Fernandez, all of whom recorded on the classic Strawbs albums of the 1970s. Rounding out the lineup will be keyboardist Dave Bainbridge of the band, Iona. It has been quite a few years since the full electric Strawbs toured Canada.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see their last electric tour!

Strawbs album, Hero & Heroine, has been listed by Rolling Stone magazine as “one of the 50 greatest prog rock albums of all time”. It is the band’s biggest seller worldwide and was certified gold in North America.
In the USA Strawbs had seven consecutive albums in the Billboard Top 200.

Dave Cousins, founder member, has been described by All Music Guide as: “the most talented Dylaninfluenced songwriter to come out of England”.  He recently released his long awaited, and critically acclaimed, autobiography Exorcising Ghosts: Strawbs and Other Lives. It was listed by influential critic Richie Unterberger in his “Top 10 of 2014 rock books”
