LondonJazz: RIP Louis Stewart (1944-2016) | Jazz Plus | Scoop.it
Irish guitarist Louis Stewart passed away earlier today at the age of 72. He passed away peacefully in a hospice, after a short battle against cancer. His career from the late 1960's onwards took him to the highest level worldwide, but his loss is most deeply felt today in the Irish jazz community. As a self-taught home-grown musician who had unquestionably made his mark internationally, Stewart is - with very good reason - utterly revered by the Irish jazz community.
