Novato, CA – Buffy Ford Stewart is a witness to rock and roll history. She is the wife of the influential folk singer and songwriter John Stewart of the Kingston Trio. She and her husband shared a profound musical bond for more than 50 years until he passed away in 2008.

Stewart will host two memorial shows to mark 10 years since her husband’s passing in Los Angeles on January 20th and in San Francisco on January 27th.  The performance will feature John Stewart’s band as well as some very special guests.

John Stewart is perhaps best known as the credited writer for the Monkees’ classic pop hit “Daydream Believer,” a song you can still hear on the radio today.

“It was an accident,” Stewart recalls. “You never know when you're going to write a hit.”

Stewart served as something of a songwriting guru to many household names like Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks,

“Rosanne Cash called him her musical mentor,” says Stewart. “She would write a song and send it to him. He would write back and say, 'Where's the madness?'"

Stewart says the shows will deliver the same sense of community John strived to create through his music.

“We were so lucky in that John had fans who were just in awe and waited for the music and needed the music,” says Stewart.  “They stood in line for hours in the rain, sleet and snow to hear the music. He's in heaven now. They’re all in heaven now. That must be one heckuva band.”
