The Poozies first burst onto the folk scene in 1991, when folk music wore elaborately patterned woolly jumpers and was only seen in dingy back rooms and very late at night on BBC2 – yet from the word go they were breaking out and happily exploring the musical universe.
The folk scene was then, as now, very male-dominated and so it was a conscious decision back then to be an ‘all-female’ band. The name came from a den of iniquity frequented by Robert Burns, called Poozie Nancy’s, and there is some debate amongst the four founder members as to whether the now-obvious meaning of ‘Poozie’ was realised back then… but the feeling now is that it’s pretty rock and roll!!
As with all bands that have been on the road for so long there have been various line-up changes, and although it’s probably fair to say a male may feel it’s slightly strange to be in a band with this name, there has also always been a natural choice of who will join the band and these people have also just so happened to be female. Throughout the years The Poozies have toured worldwide, and attracted recognition and appreciation for their eclectic choice of material, unusual and exciting arrangements, and heart-tugging vocal harmonies.
