Help Bob Stuart Heal

Bob Stuart has been an important part of the Maine folk world since he sailed into the harbor town of Rockland, Maine in the late 1970's.  

He is to all who know him a gentle and kind man, quick to smile, quick to sing, always looking at the sky, the ground, and marveling at the good and beautiful.  He is a fine instrumentalist, a strong singer and an eloquent songwriter who is always far too modest about his own talent and influence.

In 2013 he started with renewed passion to record all of the songs he has written ( a feat and a half) and his newest album 'Songs for Elizabeth' is made up of all the favorite songs of his wife of 34 years,Elizabeth Gifford Stuart. He also was starting to gig with his daughter  Megan and make plans for a mini tour... but...

In the fall of 2014 Bob had a small irritation with his throat and what we all thought was a biopsy of a harmless lump was confirmed as throat cancer.  A  heartbreak diagnosis for anyone, but one that cut especially keen for him as a singer.  In the subsequent scans an aortic aneurysm was also detected.  Bob has now finished his treatment of radiation and is now slowly returning to health. But like so many people who are faced with overwhelming hospital bills after a terrible diagnosis, the Stuarts are in need of help. 

So we started this page, and we are planning a benefit concert, and we are reaching out and showing our love through the years, across the miles, over the seas, because he is special.

Bob Stuart has touched so many with his kindness, his loyalty and his amazing talent as a songwriter and musician. Now it is our turn to return the love at this time of need. All funds raised from the concert Circle of Friends on March 27th at the Lincoln Street Center in Rockland, Maine and online fundraiser will help support Bob and his family as he finishes his treatment for throat cancer. As he starts the long road to recovery, come add your voice to the chorus and allow Bob and his family to concentrate on healing.
