Originally coming to prominence as part of the explosion of the roots scene, Carus Thompson is a gifted songwriter and storyteller. He travels, he observes and he writes it all down, but he is no disengaged cynic.His energetic, passionate and genuine pub-rock approach to performance, sets him apart from the majority of singer-songwriters. He's no show gazer. He gives every gig his all, and he’s built a legion a fans through Europe and Australia because of it.

Worldwide, Carus Thompson has sold over 30,000 albums independently and supported luminaries such as Dave Matthews, Damien Rice, Jack Johnson as well as good friends John Butler, Xavier Rudd and The Waifs. He’s wowed audiences at all the major festivals and after five studio albums continues to hold a well earned reputation as one of this country's hardest working and best acoustic artists.

Carus played the Ellington in March this year, selling it out. The intimacy of the venue was the perfect setting for his engaging and powerful show. He'll be backed for this time by Mo Wilson on grand piano and his good friend Dave Johnson on mandolin and vocals. Dave will also play a set of his own beautiful songs to open. Book early for this special show with one of this countries best independent acoustic singer-songwriters.
