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.

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?"

By Bob Stuart
“This is my first album made after I had settled down on the coast of Maine and began a family. I was hired at a little inn in Camden Maine to sing every other weekend in the Pub called The Thirsty Whale Tavern. It was quite the time, with singing all night, laughing, sharing stories and traditional songs. Many of my own songs quickly became favorites at the establishment; it was there I met many of my best and dearest friends including my wife, during those early days in Maine. A number of my friends conspired to get my songs recorded in 1983. it wasn’t as easy as it is today. Thanks to Glenn Jenks and Ned Ackerman, and the many talented musicians who performed around Maine then, and still do, we recorded Rainbow’s End at the Noel Stookey Studios in Blue Hill Maine. This album contains songs written before and during those euphoric early years of Maine life.” ~ Bob Stuart
