Mark Stuart returns for Sooke folk concert series

Mark Stuart returns to the Sooke Folk Music Society concert series on Friday (April 27)

The concert takes place at Holy Trinity Anglican Church at 8 p.m.

After many years on the folk circuit, Stuart has cultivated a very rounded performance. His show consists of storytelling, flashy guitar “chops,” and songs that 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. There were stints along the way as a sideman, though: Steve Forbert, Freddy Fender, Steve Earle, and Joan Baez.

One can find Stuart on any given night in a small theater, coffeehouse, house concert, festival stage, club, and church auditoriums.

Advance tickets are $20 and available at Shoppers Drug Mart in Sooke or $25 at the door.
