Things of Stone and Wood

Tue 10 Mar |



“Melbourne’s most inspired and inspiring acoustic band”  - Michael Dwyer

30 years ago, at a Carlton share house, Michael Allen would arrive at the door with some beer and he and Greg Arnold would sit around singing harmonies - just for the fun of it. Then Tony Floyd joined in with some more harmonies, only now, they had some drums. Things of Stone and Wood was born.

Since then they’ve managed to have two top-ten albums, a top-four radio hit with “Wildflowers”, tour Australia and the world, and win ARIA and APRA song-writing awards.

At the forefront of the folk and roots scene, their innovative use of acoustic instruments helped pave the way for the next wave of artists such as John Butler, The Waifs and Angus and Julia Stone.

The band reunited in 2014 and have been playing sold out shows and major festivals to the same enthusiastic response from their devoted fans. With meaningful lyrics and passionate, energetic performances, a Things of Stone and Wood concert is always an uplifting and emotional affair.

On this 30th anniversary tour, the band (joined by long-time collaborator James Black  - Rockwiz, Mondo Rock), will play all of their biggest hits, plus new material from their forthcoming album: The Final Forest - their first release in over a decade!
