About the Actor

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". 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.
