Clutching At Straws are a multi-talented and diverse alternative folk quartet, hailing from Staffordshire, who use an impressive variety of instruments to build a full, layered sound suffused with subtlety. Their influences are diverse and eclectic with hints of everything from the irony of bluegrass through to the drama of musical theatre.
Original lyrics lend themselves to songs that are deep and meaningful, digging into the fundamental questions of human existence, juxtaposed with songs full of hyperbole, conferring a dry English humour laced with a healthy dose of tongue-in-cheek satirical soliloquies, often intentionally subversive.
Straws’ live shows are brimming with energy and audience interaction. A Straws’ gig promises to be a highlight for the hardcore music fan as well as a treat for the layperson enjoying a pint in their local.
Clutching At Straws are: James Baskett, James Wheeler, Thomas Simm & Jake Mahal
