songwriter storyteller troubadour
'...blessed with a resonant, classic English folk voice. These are songs that you'll want to hear again and again'. Tim Carrol, FolkWords.
Stuart's self-produced album A Yard of Ale is mastered by Pete Maher, whose recent projects include U2, The Killers, Scissor Sisters, Liam Gallagher (Beady Eye) and Jack White to name just a few.
As he continues to build a formidable live reputation, A Yard Of Ale is the album that, if there is any justice in this world, will push Stuart Forester to the forefront of British folk music.
