NOVATO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 3, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- There's nothing like creating something, but performing it for an audience is something else entirely. You have to give what you've created to the people with the same love you used to create it. You're serving people when you perform your music.
Buffy Ford Stewart is a witness to rock and roll history. She is the wife of the influential folk singer and songwriter John Stewart of the Kingston Trio and she and her husband shared a profound musical bond for more than 50 years until he passed away in 2008.
Buffy will host two memorial shows to mark 10 years since her husband’s passing in Lakeside at Dark-Thirty on Saturday, January 20th. The performance will feature John Stewart’s band as well as some very special guests.
“John wrote outside the lines,” says Stewart of her husband. “He wasn't a conventional writer. He wrote songs that touched people, that moved people, that really fed their souls.
John Stewart is perhaps best known as the credited writer for the Monkees’ classic pop hit “Daydream Believer,” a song you can still hear on the radio today.
“It was an accident,” Stewart recalls. “You just never know which song is going to be the song. You just write. You never know who's going to love a song. You never know when you're going to write a hit.”
Stewart served as something as a songwriting guru to many household names like Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks,
“Rosanne Cash called him her musical mentor,” says Stewart. “She would write a song and send it to him. He would write back and say, "Where's the madness?"
Stewart says the shows will deliver the same sense of community John strived to create through his music.
“We were so lucky in that John had fans who were just in awe and waited for the music and needed the music,” says Stewart. “They stood in line for hours in the rain, sleet and snow to hear the music. He's in heaven now. They’re all in heaven now. That must be one heckuva band.”
CUTV News Radio will feature Buffy Ford Stewart in an interview with Jim Masters on January 5th at 3pm EST and January 12th at 3pm EST.
Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.
