C.W. Stoneking in Germany and Swiss17-02-2011
When Seasick Steve introduced C.W. Stoneking to the stage at the BBC 4’s Folk America festival in London last year he said how he was turned onto him by Charlie Gillett and laughed as he told the audience: “This boy’s lost in the 1920s and 30s. He’s not kind of, he really lost”. What followed was a prime lesson in how to steal a show as CW, along with his band The Primitive Horn Orchestra, proceeded to swing their way through a set of what he calls blues, hokum and jungle music that led the Observer to proclaim “hearing Stoneking perform live is, somehow, like listening to an old 78 recovered from a dusty attic in New Orleans”.
After his successful tour in September last year he just kicked off a new European tour. We're happy to have booked the German/Swiss leg of the tour:
