When Stewart was 6 years old he got a harmonica for Christmas. By dinnertime he could play “These Are My Mountains.” Music was always there. With brothers Sheumas, Kyle, he started playing at local parish concerts. Their mother would rehearse a few songs with Sheumas playing fiddle and piano, Kyle on guitar and fiddle and Stewart played harmonica. Stewart evolved into a multi –instrumentalist, vocalist, composer of songs, lyrics and tunes, arranger and dancer and continues to explore creativity and art through the 25 years plus career of the Barra MacNeils. Stewart has been learning Gaelic for a few years now and hopes to be fully fluent in Gaelic someday.
