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.

What a Singing There Will Be
Timberhead Music is a small publishing company that produces the written and recorded music of Gordon Bok. This music store lists all of Gordon's many recordings as well as his songbooks, as well as all the recordings of the trio Bok, Muir and Trickett. Please note: some CDs are now available only in digital format, and some of the older CDs are available through Folk-Legacy's website. We provide links for easy access. In addition we offer a handpicked selection of albums from some of Gordon's many folk musician friends.
Gordon's latest release
"In late March 1979, Gordon and I were on an odyssey of exploration, friendship, teaching, and learning. We tried to create a blueprint of the mystical “business” called “music”, but in reality, you can’t distill what we do down to a formula… it’s more like alchemy of old, lost to time but alive in our imagining.
Two old friends are now privileged to revisit it again in our later years. As the saying goes, you had to be there… but if you weren’t, you can be now."
~Bob Zentz, 2017

A Gathering of Stones
By Dave Goulder
A compilation of poetry readings accompanied by poetry readings, featuring several artists, including Gordon Bok.
This unique album portrays through music, verse, and sounds of nature the beauty of stone walls.
"You could call it a labour of love, but it is more than that: it records in music and words all the sounds and feels and harshness and beauty of the craft which all wallers identify with." ~ David Griffiths, Waller & Dyker
"One could offer the analogy that each of the individual audio stones making up this disc is placed so that the entire sequence is attractive to the ear; the work of a master craftsman indeed." David Kidman, The Living Tradition. Read the entire review here. More »
