TONY JOE WHITE
Fri 20 Mar | 8pm

Tony Joe White was literally born for the blues, the part-Cherokee musician being brought up as part of a big brood on a cotton farm in Louisiana, an upbringing reflected to this day in his evocative, haunting music and adding a veneer of authenticity to everything that he touches. Do not miss him when he joins us in Melbourne's west in 2015.
