WIN! THINGS OF STONE AND WOOD 30th Anniversary tour tickets

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, and 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 songwriting awards. Also, they even enjoyed a surprising moment of sunshine in the grunge-grey sky of the early 90s with their joyous hit Happy Birthday Helen. At the forefront of the folk and roots scene, their innovative usage of acoustic instruments helped pave the way for the next wave of artists such as John Butler, The Waifs and Angus and Julia Stone.

We’re stoked to have two double passes to giveaway to Things of Stone and Wood‘s show on Monday, March 16 at Bar 1 Night Club in Hillary’s.
