Due to the devastating effects of the bushfires happening across Australia, The Salvation Army is raising funds to help those communities directly affected by the fires.

ALH Group is pledging donations to S.T.A.N.D. (Support Through Natural Disasters), our partnership with The Salvation Army.

If you’d like to help, you can donate by choosing any of the donation denominations, none of which will attract a booking fee, but will have a 2% handling fee on top, i.e. $10 donation + $0.20 handling fee = $10.20.

All funds raised will help The Salvation Army provide both essential emergency support now, as well as support communities as they recover and rebuild. Thank you for your support.

C.W. Stoneking is an artist for whom ‘unexpected’ is probably the default setting. How else to describe such a fine purveyor of American roots music who also happens to be a towering, youthful-faced white Australian man? 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.

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. 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 finds the strands that connect all of these different styles and gently braids them together

Catch him live in Mackay at Mount Pleasant Tavern, 1st March  2020
