Fiddler’s Green Coffeehouse
Nashville-based performing songwriter Mark Stuart will be making his second appearance at Fiddler’s Green. Onstage, his focus is on the songs he has penned and recorded, delivered with a soulful singing voice and highly memorable guitar playing.
After many years on the Americana/folk circuit, Stuart has cultivated a very rounded performance. His show consists of storytelling, flashy guitar “chops”, and songs that seem to draw from his rock, blues, country, and folk music roots. Mostly, this artist from Tennessee has toured solo or in a notable duo with his wife (“Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart”). There were stints
along the way as a sideman, though (for Steve Forbert, Freddy Fender, Steve Earle, and Joan Baez). If placed on the bill with a contemporary artist he is usually asked to play guitar on their portion of the show. Just ask Jason Ringenberg, Ray Wylie Hubbard, or Jimmy LaFave.
One can find Mark Stuart on any given night in a small theater, coffeehouse, house concert, festival stage, club, or church auditorium, giving it his all. Aside from that, he could be instructing at a guitar clinic or songwriting workshop, or playing on someone’s recording session. As co-owner of Gearle Records, he has produced or co-produced many albums. Over several decades Stuart’s career has repeatedly taken him to all of the USA, Canada, Europe, and the United Kingdom.
Mockingbird’s Wing has cultivated a strong following at Atlanta area coffeehouses and other acoustic venues with its adroitly delivered folk, rock, soul and pop repertoire. The group features four diverse musicians:
Barbara Hotz is a singer/songwriter with deep roots in Mexico and a love of the old standards.
Jonathan McBee is a multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter out of Chicago, IL. If it’s got strings, Jonathan is looking to add it to the Mockingbird sound.
Paul Pendery is a Montana/Alaska/Texas singer/songwriter whose songs evoke soulful stirrings and happy feet.
Suzy Schultz, when she is not at her day job as a full-time artist, adds vocals/flute/cello to the Mockingbird sound.
Like the mockingbird herself, all the different voices and styles come together for a unique sound – the inimitable Mockingbird’s Wing sound.
