Mark Stuart to play at members' concert at The Club April 16

Guitarist Mark Stuart draws on his diverse musical roots in his crowd-pleasing concerts.

Stuart’s shows consist of storytelling, flashy guitar “chops” and songs that seem to draw from his rock, blues, country, and folk music roots. Mark Stuart‘s website says the guitar player is spending 2016 doing what he has always done: touring full-time as a musical artist and bringing his years of experience to the stage. Onstage, his focus is on the songs he has penned and recorded, delivered with a soulful singing voice and highly memorable guitar playing.

According to his website, after many years on the Americana/folk circuit, Stuart has cultivated a well-rounded performance, drawing on his diverse musical background. Mostly, this artist from Tennessee has toured solo, or in a notable duo with his wife as “Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart.” There were stints along the way as a sideman with Steve Forbert, Freddy Fender, Steve Earle and Joan Baez. If placed on the bill with a contemporary artist he is usually asked to play guitar on their portion of the show. Just ask Jason Ringenberg, Ray Wylie Hubbard or Jimmy LaFave.

One can find Mark Stuart on any given night in a small theater,
coffeehouse, house concert, festival stage, club or church auditorium giving it his all. The Club @ the Boatyard is the perfect venue for this special members’ concert. Aside from his performances, Stuart could be found instructing at a guitar clinic, songwriting workshop, or playing on someone’s recording session. As co-owner of Gearle Records he has produced or co-produced many albums. Stuart’s career has repeatedly taken him to all of the USA, Canada, Europe, and the United Kingdom, and, has spanned several decades.
