Strawbs - Listened to their consumers

For nearly half a century in business, this bluegrass band once started as Strawberry Hill Boys. Nowadays they play mainly rock-like numbers.

How did Strawbs get the band name - Strawberry Hill House, Great LondonBefore they adopted their current name Strawbs they were called after Strawberry Hill, the part of London where their roots are to be found.

That name of course could be shortened, the fans must have thought: they affectionately called the band The Strawbs.

The band quite rightly listened to their consumers.
