Stuart has been writing and performing songs on acoustic guitar for many years. Originally performing in the folk clubs of Leicester, he now lives in Horsham, West Sussex.
His songs are drawn from a variety of sources including; arrangements of traditional British folk songs; arrangements of lyrics taken from broadside ballads; traditional-style gospel and shaker songs and finally, his own compositions.
Stuart runs the Billingshurst Chapel Folk Club.
When time allows, he builds his own guitars, having been tutored some years ago by one of the UK’s most respected luthier’s, Nick Benjamin.
