The second in a series of Coffeehouse Concerts at The Gathering Place will feature Mark Stuart, musical artist on the Americana/Folk circuit.
Mark, a Tennessean, is currently on tour in eastern states. He has cultivated a well-rounded performance, by integrating storytelling, flashy guitar “chops,” and songs that draw from his rock, blues, country, and folk music roots. He has built a career of songwriting and performing on the grassroots level.
Mark has toured solo and as a duo with his wife, Stacey Earle with whom he owns Gearle Records.
His guitar skills have been showcased on tours with Freddie Fender, Steve Forbert, Steve Earle and Joan Baez. His career has spanned several decades with performances in US, Canada, Europe and the UK. In addition to his stage career, Mark runs guitar clinics, songwriting workshops, and recording sessions.
Mark will do a “mini” concert from 4 to 5 PM, followed by a songwriting /guitar workshop and talk about his songwriting ideas from 5 to 6 PM.
The public is invited to attend the concert and workshop or any one of the two sessions. Admission is a $10 donation to be paid at the door.
