In a magnificent closing weekend of Twilight at Taronga presented by ANZ, the 2016 series was brought to an end with a performance from the eccentric and enigmatic jungle-blues troubadour C.W. Stoneking on Friday night and the illustrious South African a cappella group Ladysmith Black Mambazo for a sold out show on Saturday night.
C.W. Stoneking took to the stage in his signature white shirt and slacks, bow tie and slick, oiled locks. Supported by alt-country singer Marlon Williams, the Katherine native had the audience captivated as he shared larger than life tales, switching between the banjo and the Fender to perform his critically acclaimed jungle blues and complemented by his backing band the Primitive Horn Orchestra.
In 2016, Twilight at Taronga presented by ANZ experienced its most successful season in the events’ 21-year history, with a total of 14 out of 17 shows selling out.
