Bret Stewart is a singer, songwriter, and passionate promoter of folk music as just that - the music that happens in our living rooms and on our porches with family and friends. I enjoy playing my originals as well as finding new audiences for folk music.
I can't seem to remember a time in my life when I wasn't playing music. As a child, the only music my parents had around the house were old Irish and Scottish folk records - The Bothy Band, The Chieftains, The Corries. As an adolescent I naturally did the rock and roll thing for a while, but as I got a little older I returned to my roots. I enjoy playing both traditional Irish and Scottish folk music (with strong Jacobite leanings) as well as originals on my unique 9-string guitar.
