Tom Waits for No Man
Stewart D’Arrietta performs the songs of Tom Waits
Tom Waits depicted the poor, the punks, the hobos and the lost. He could also write a love song to shatter Cupid’s bow.
Stewart D’Arrietta and his hand-picked live band covers this terrain of tenderness to terror, and all the pathos in between. He has a long relationship with the music, and an affinity deeper than most having developed the hit show over two decades.
One of the 10 best shows at Edinburgh Fringe according to the UK’s 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.
