Biography
The acoustic line up of current Straight Bends perform popular songs of their youth from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s mixed with more contemporary music and original compositions with the added twist of the sounds and nuances of Mick Doyle’s Mandolins, Banjo and whistle (on the odd occasion), which not only adds an originality to the compositions but also creates a visual spectacle when Mick has to swap instruments between songs!
Combine this with a collective sense of humour (that quite honestly has left some audiences puzzled and perplexed to the extreme) and you have a melting pot of musical mayhem which is all accomplished whilst sitting down!
With the trio performing songs from artists as diverse as Alan Hull, Kate Rusby, Joe Jackson, Steve Earle, The Cure, Thin Lizzy, REM, Sting, Tom Petty, Santana, Rolling Stones, Bowie, Stranglers, Sex Pistols, America, Paul Carrack, Mcguinness Flint, Goo Goo Dolls, Annie Lennox, Kraftwerk, Snow Patrol, U2 and of course …. Mike Emery! You’ll not go home disappointed as there’s always a song in there for everyone.
