WUMB Presents Dietrich Strause
Thursday, May 18th, 2017 - 7pm WUMB Live Broadcast
Dietrich Strause’s songs are a mix of timeless melody, literate lyricism, and a "virtuosic command of imagery.” (The Artery, WBUR) In 2016 Strause released How Cruel That Hunger Binds produced by Zachariah Hickman (Ray LaMontage, Josh Ritter), the next benchmark in his steady evolution as one of the most eclectic writers and performers coming out of New England. This latest collection of songs is found somewhere in the shadows of the likes of Randy Newman, Nick Lowe, and Paul Simon. Since it's release, Strause has toured extensively throughout the UK sharing the stage with folk luminaries such as Sarah Jarosz, Darlingside, and Sara Watkins.
