C.W. Stoneking

Tanks Arts Centre - Tank 5

On sale now

For C.W. Stoneking, the road continues to call, and rumour has it he is on his way to Cairns for an intimate solo performance at Tanks.

There are multitudes in Stoneking’s music.

It’s probably easiest to describe him as a ‘blues artist,’ but the term disguises what makes his music special as there’s so much in there. A 1920s pre-war blues sound is key, but there’s almost equal helpings of New Orleans jazz, jug band music, hokum, country and calypso, and he’s lately brought in elements of jump jive, early rock’n’roll and gospel. His gift is that he brings them all together without anything sounding out of place.

He surprises first-time listeners, throws curveballs at long-time fans, and everything he does contains at least some background level of bafflement for all involved.

Fans can expect songs old and new, favourites performed as never heard before and perhaps a few surprises too.
