C.W. Stoneking On World Cafe

Jun 23, 2016

Blues singer-songwriter C.W. Stoneking is touring the U.S. for the first time this summer, but he's been well known in Australia for over 20 years. His last record, Gon' Boogaloo, even earned him a ARIA Award (the Australian equivalent of a Grammy) for Best Blues and Roots Album.

In this session, Stoneking talks about why he started recording after years of only playing live. But make no mistake: His current touring schedule still has him performing almost every day of the year. You'll hear his live sound in this session, too — it's almost like listening to a pile of old 78s.
