“Mark has played with Stacey Earle several times at Cafe Paradiso to capacity audiences. If you were there you know what a uniquely talented player he is. Besides being a killer guitar player he’s an amazing song writing machine. Mark is a real Nashville pro, performing for years with the Grammy award winning Steve Earle and the Dukes. Don’t miss him!” – Steve Giacomini, Café Paradiso
Mark Stuart is a veteran artist of the Folk/Americana music circuit. As a songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist he has toured extensively all over the USA, Canada and Europe. Few genres of Americana are left out of his performances (he touches upon blues, rock, folk, country and more).
Much of his time in the last decade has been devoted to a husband-wife duo, “Stacey Earle and Mark Stuart” but recently he has returned to his roots as a solo artist. In past years, Stuart lent his musical hands to other artists in the studio and on tour. Many of these fellow performers (Steve Forbert, Freddy Fender, Steve Earle, Jonnell Mosser) are well-known on the same “roots music” circuit.
Celebrated festivals (Cambridge Folk Festival, Kate Wolf Festival, Kerrville, Merlefest, etc.) and radio shows (Whad’Ya Know?, Woodsongs, Mountain Stage, etc.) have been host to Mark’s performances and he has surfaced as an instructor at many songwriting schools and guitar clinics.
A Nashville native, Mark Stuart has recorded a new CD titled, “Left of Nashville”, in which he plays all instruments and wrote all the songs.
Showtime is Sunday, May 26th at 8PM. Tickets are $10 in advance (cafeparadiso.net or at Paradiso), $12 at the show.
