Rab Noakes the performer can be presented in a variety of ways.
Solo he has honed his stage-craft to perfection and really puts that extra indefinable something into a performance that makes an audience feel they have seen and heard something extraordinary.
With Fraser Speirs on harmonica the carefully selected voicings and arrangements bring a musicality and subtlety to the performance which makes it both a moving and exciting experience.
With The Varaflames the audience is treated to a timeless selection of material played with the consummate skill of musicians who know their way round the intricacies of the popular song with integrity, style and wit.
Noakes's anecdotal style complements the songs and brings a focus to the proceedings which wears its life-span well.
Noakes and Fraser are also adept at the art of interactive workshops covering instrumental prowess, accompaniment, songwriting etc. Noakes experience in radio and TV production means these events have shape and content giving them a unique balance of information and entertainment value.
