'...blessed with a resonant, classic English-folk voice...he can also write, play and sing touching, searching and pointedly perceptive narrative-rich folk songs. For assurance, were any needed, his latest album 'A Yard of Ale' is the only testament required. These are songs that you'll want to hear again and again.' – Tim Carroll. Folkwords

It was a big night at Twickfolk th is weekend with both Dick Gaughan and Stuart Forester in the Twickfolk spotlight. With a big crowd, we found ourselves in the folk amphitheatre upstairs and under a fierce red spotlight it felt like we were in a boiling cauldron. The music lived up to it's roasting atmosphere and it was a memorable night.
Stuart started off proceeding with an excellent and unpretentious set of earthy narratives. Themes included piracy, hellraising and drinking, with 'The Star of the West' being my favourite.

"Cumbrian born, London based, folk guitarist, mountain-dulcimer player & singer-songwriter. Stuart’s clarity of voice & guitar, along with his tapestry of woven lyrics, holds his audience in a pin-drop spell". -
