After his wonderful performance for our Café Sessions in June, and after a 3-month tour of the UK, Netherlands and Germany, Stuart Rose returns to MAP Studio Café to perform a solo concert of his wondrous Contemporary Folk, Jazz and World Music.
Evocative, melodic, poetic, often exotic, talented singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and composer, Stuart Rose, creates a marvellous mix of Jazz Blues, Contemporary Folk and World Music. With his warm smoky vocals, guitars, bouzouki, Irish low whistles, Turkish ney flute, didgeridoo (yes, he’s originally from Australia) and loops, Stuart performs his achingly beautiful songs and sensational instrumentals in a very intimate solo concert.
Stuart Rose’s original and improvisational style creates uniquely soulful music. As a journeyman through many different genres of music, he now finds joy in grafting and blending musical styles, developing fusions that intersect generic boundaries – be that a big Jazz guitar break in an Alt-Country song, for example, or jumping between or even combining Western & Eastern music, including Celtic, Appalachian, Andalusian, Latin and Aegean traditions. Stuart’s recent performances include sold out shows at Adelaide Guitar Festival 2016 “Guitars In Bars”, highlights including WOMADelaide, Adelaide Fringe Festival (5 out of 5 star reviews), and touring the UK, Netherlands, Germany and Denmark in 2013, receiving fabulous responses from audiences everywhere.
