POSHER THAN STRANGE

‘Posher than Strange’ are a group of women who go beyond the remit of most bands by reworking the Diva themes and challenging the traditional format of the band line up. ‘Posh’ creates a new gig experience that is as eccentric as it is cool. The Band: Lisa Wedgner – Creative lead vocalist who brings a broad range of influences and a dollop of humour to this group. Lisa loves music by Billy Holliday and PJ Harvey and revels in delivering a Beyonce hit.

Lou Duffy-Howard – Former Planet Wilson resident and Red Guitars bassist, Lou loves music from Jefferson Airplane and JAMC to Jordi Savall.

Ysabelle Wombwell – Singer-songwriter based in Hull exploring a multitude of genres including reggae, folk and rock whilst staying true to pop ideals giving percussive support to this assemble.

Claire Brennan – Accompanying pianist whose musicality is matched by an equal measure of comic timing, Claire loves playing anything from Cole Porter, Chopin and Lunch Money Lewis.

Lynn Spence – The newest member of this band and bringing 20 years’ experience of playing . She is influenced Andrea Rieu and Mr Fiddle.
