Description

Tom Waits depicted the poor, the punks, the hobos and the lost. He could also write a love song to shatter Cupid’s bow. D’Arrietta covers this terrain of tenderness to terror, and all the pathos in between. One of the 10 best shows at Edinburgh Festival Fringe according to the The Sunday Times, his characteristic gravel-voiced sensitivity brings out the shapes and shades of legendary songs such as Invitation to the Blues, Martha and the wrenching Tom Traubert’s Blues. ‘The king of whiskey, smoke and late nights… exceptional’ (BroadwayWorld.com).

I am a Waites fan, and it was a pleasure to share this affectionate resume of some old favourites.

I saw Stewart the first time in Edinburgh in 2008 performing "The belly of a drunken piano". At the time I was familiar with only one Tom Waits song. When I went to see him few days ago, I know every song Tom Waits ever published and I am a huge fan. Steward's interpretation of songs like "All the world is green" and "Kentucky avenue" is sublime. I enjoyed every moment of the show and I would say if you are a Tom Waits fan, or even a fan of music in general, this is a must see show in the fringe this year. 5 stars

He’s very good indeed - both of them actually. It was a lovely way to finish our evening. A good selection of Tom Waits songs and he has the right voice.
