Transcript from an Interview with Lee Stewart
Hi I am a singer songwriter and I was born in Sydney, Nova Scotia back in 1956, on the Island of Cape Breton.. I live on the beautiful Island of Cape Breton with my wife of twenty four years Susan, together we have three children Chris 21 Megan 19 Brandon 10.. I live here I work as a transit operator (Bus Driver) for the city in which I live: I drive a bus for the disabled, Mentally challenged and the elderly, I love my job and my family and friends. One thing I can say about myself is that I do not live in the past and do not fear the future! For those of you who don't know where this is, It is on the east coast of Canada. I enjoy many styles of music from country to pop Celtic to folk. Mostly I play on my own for various events within my community. but I have been fortunate to share the stage with some of cape Bretons favourite performers such as Bobby Lewis (Carlton Show Band) Cyril MacPhee ,Buddy MacDonald, The Back In Time band with Joe Rankin. and many others. I have performed on stage at the Savoy theater and on Stage at Centre 200 I play many songs from the sixties and the seventies and enjoy also playing my own material. Most of my recordings have been done at home using my maudio interface and some recording software, I hope those who listen enjoy the songs, each one has a special meaning for me and are about some special people and places in my life. If you got the time drop me a message. And visit me on My Space and say Hello. http://www.facebook.com/leestewart
