Bob Stuart CDs
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?"

Songs For Elizabeth
By Bob Stuart
“This was a loving project for my wife Elizabeth. We met while we both worked at The Thirsty Whale Tavern in the late ‘70s. She the tavern waitress and me the singer - we got married there in 1980. Since those days she had always wanted me to record a CD of songs she use to hear me sing at the Tavern. This is a solo project, just me and my nylon string guitar, with very little production. I wanted it to feel like you were at the Tavern sipping some scotch and listening to my stories. Some of the songs are traditional and some of them are mine; but all are my wife’s favorites. Some of the songs, I don’t think I have performed in public since the heyday of the Thirsty Whale. These songs were all recorded at the Rowboat Studio in Thomaston, Maine.” ~ Bob Stuart
