Stuart Cartwright / Tutor
Where did you study music?
I studied Music and Electronics at Glasgow University. After that I became Principal Guitar Teacher in a private music school in Stirling for 3 yrs. My band “Unkle Bob” started to take off shortly after that so relocated from Glasgow to London. I then played/wrote/recorded and toured with the band for about 10 years.
What is your favourite piece of music?
That’s hard to answer I don’t know if I have a favourite. I can tell you the last three songs I listened to “House Fire” by Tyler Childers, “Preacher Blues” Son House Cover by Larkin Poe, and Fisherman’s Blues by the Waterboys. Next week it could be something completely different, too much music to listen too!
What single thing you could not live without?
Who has inspired you the most?
Probably my old man, not in a musical sense but in the way I approach everything I do musically. He’s an athlete, trains hard, very competitive, always wants to be the best. He’s been doing it 40 odd years now and still running at 77, now that’s dedication.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in a small village called Thornhill in Central Scotland.
