Things of Stone and Wood

"The Yearning" Tour

 

Melbourne’s favourite folkies Things of Stone and Wood play their top ten, gold record The Yearning in full for the first time.

It’s been twenty-five years since the album broke through, paving the way for Australia’s burgeoning folk scene including The Waifs, John Butler and Angus & Julia Stone.

Anchored by the hit ‘Happy Birthday Helen’ the album quickly became a staple in Australia’s national songbook prompting everything from an APRA Songwriter of the Year award to a Late Show parody. After re-forming in 2014 for a sell-out tour, the band proved that their crowd were still as loyal as ever and the decision to play The Yearning for another round was an easy one, eagerly awaited by their fans.

The show in the beautiful Spiegeltent will feature the album’s full fourteen tracks in a tribute to one of Australia’s all-time best albums. Treat yourself to a stellar night of great songs, by a great band in a great venue!

 

Presented by Strut & Fret
