C.W. Stoneking & His Primitive Horn Orchestra

C.W. Stoneking

It’s been over ten years since ARIA-award-winning bluesman C.W. Stoneking has performed with the Primitive Horn Orchestra, and now, the renowned songsmith is bringing his spectacle of a live show to the MoPo stage with his exceptional ensemble in tow.

Gently weaving together 1920s blues, New Orleans jazz, country and calypso, C.W. Stoneking is an artist who continues to baffle first-time listeners and long-time fans through his experimentation with early American roots music, combining irreverent and fantastical songwriting with humour and surrealist charm.

Joining C.W. Stoneking is Australian singer-songwriter Freya Josephine Hollick, an artist noted by Double J as one of five artists leading the new country renaissance, renowned for her unique blend of desert rock and cosmic country.
