Pagan Folk, Acid Folk, Celtic Folk, Psych Folk, Psychedelia (Australia)
One Straw was an Australian Permaculture / Pagan acoustic / folk outfit. They were at the forefront of the permaculture/pagan/wyrd folk movement in early 1990s Australia and remain as original and weird now as they were then.
One Straw threw away any rule books they may have once stumbled across, with instrumental combinations ranging from the traditional guitar / mandolin / flute / bass etc to include celtic harp, flutes, glockenspiel, whistles, seed pods and whirly tubes. This was all tied together by the powerfully emotive singing of Annie Peterson (nee Deller).
