I was Posh & Strange last night with my Posher than Strange band buddies, celebrating International Women’s Day with our debut performance at Hull Adelphi as part of the most excellent AWAYKE 5. We enjoyed a fantastic line up of Emily Pepsi Thomson, Michelle Dee, Emma Fee, Emma Rugg and The Dyr Sister before we hit the stage.
We had a blast! Lisa excelled as the Divine Diva and my favourite part was when the audience gave a spontaneous round of applause when she totally cut it with the rap in Rapture. Claire and Lyn were cool on the keys and violin and here’s to Ysabelle’s first time out on the drum kit – we are a rhythm section!
Have a look through this gallery of Rich’s photos which show what a great time we all had…
‘Posher than Strange’ are a group of women who rework the Diva themes, creating a performance that is as eccentric as it is cool…
…but sometimes we seem to be quite normal….
