Some act are like fine wine they just get better as the years go by and The Acoustic Strawbs are one of those acts. This will be a magical evening and a huge pleasure to have the guys back at Wokingham Music Club albeit this time at The Whitty Theatre
The support act is the very talented Irene Rae http://www.irenerae.com/
Irene Rae mixes emotional lyrics and a powerful yet delicate vocal with entertaining and funny stories about life, love and places her travels have taken her.
‘’Connecting with the audience through her music and creating a living room feel to her performance is where Irene Rae’s personality shines…a real pleasure to have witnessed.’’ EST Mag
Rae’s earliest musical memories stem from being a child, sitting in the backseat of her parents Cortina and listening to endless mix tapes of a variety of amazing music from Motown to The Beatles, Karen Carpenter to Bon Jovi, Barbra Streisand to Adam and the Ants… music, and more importantly singing was a family experience, one of love and support. Song-writing and playing guitar came a lot later into her life than most of her peers – she began to teach herself guitar at the age of 22 years old, listening to CDs and recreating the sound she heard.
Irene Rae has a wide and loyal fanbase throughout the UK which has seen her support artists that include Midge Ure, Hazel O'Connor, John Power, The Levellers (acoustic), The Jigantics and Declan Bennett. Her style and lyrics have been compared to Norah Jones, Natalie Merchant, Eddi Reader, Lisa Loeb and Bic Runga – whilst remaining uniquely her own.
