Bring Out the Banjo
Here is something you might not know about. One of our local heroes, and an old ship-and-stage-mate of mine, Bob Stuart, has lost his ability to perform these days, much to our collective sorrow.
However, he has amassed an impressive collection of his own recordings over the years, with a variety of material from traditional to contemporary and his own originals.
We are offering these CDs for sale here until he gets his own website.
I am happy to think that some of you can get to enjoy the lovely voice and the lovely man who has enriched our soundscape here for so many years.

In addition we offer a handpicked selection of albums from some of Gordon's many folk musician friends.
Gordon's latest release
"Here's a bit of a landmark: selections from my first commercial recording in a New York Studio, and tracks from sessions at home - 50 years later. Peggy Seeger wrote "I am old, I am young, I am all that I've been," and it's true that all the songs I have sung have guided my life and are still a part of me.
So here are songs (and tunes) from that 1965 album, some recently made or learned, and some old songs recently visited. Carol says it feels like thumbing through a musical photo-album.
After all, now wouldn't have have ever gotten here if it wasn't for all that then, eh?"

Bring Out the Banjo
By Bob Stuart
"This album is a hidden gem and is no joke! This is a collection of banjo tunes and songs I composed with the banjo a few years ago. They were recorded by local musician and sound engineer Gary Clancy. Some of the tunes were the work of John Burk who, during the early ‘60s, was a pioneer in setting some of the traditional songs in a form easily accessible to the neophyte banjo student. This album is not just for the banjo aficionado, but for anyone who enjoys the sweet tang of traditional and bluesy rhythms.” ~ Bob Stuart More »
