Dave Stewart

By | Published on Wednesday 31 August 2011

Dave Stewart delights his audience with newly composed acoustic music, played on the guitar, electric guitar and piano. His music is soulful and beautiful, lulling most of the audience into a peaceful state of serenity over the course of the hour. His songs on the electric guitar are not as good, however, with many sounding similar to each other; his technique is also evidently less polished than the acoustic version. Stewart’s lack of conversation between songs would usually have been a hindrance, but there was something about the music which justified the surrounding silence. Set in a stark room, the evening would have benefited from more a atmospheric environment, but overall this is an enjoyable hour of music.
