Artist Spotlight: C.W. Stoneking

Meanwhile, a world away in Australia’s Northern Territory, a very young C.W. Stoneking was discovering the blues for himself by listening to an early compilation of his dad’s. That led him to Son House, Robert Johnson, Skip James and Bukka White, gospel blues, Chicago blues, ragtime, Hokum blues – and to the banjo, electric guitar, and a 1931 National Duolian dobro. He writes and performs his own songs and draws influences various eras and other music – while keeping it all true to the form.
