Profile
After beginning as a bluegrass band called the Strawberry Hill Boys, Strawbs quickly went from a folk-rock style into one of the most prominent British progressive rock bands. Singer-songwriter Dave Cousins has been the sole constant member since the band's founding in 1964. Other members over the decades have included John Hawken (also of Renaissance and Illusion), Rick Wakeman, Dave Lambert, John Ford, Blue Weaver, Chas Cronk, and Brian Willoughby.
