A wonderful young ambassador for the GFS
Stuart Lowther gave the GFS and George Formby some fine publicity this afternoon when he spoke on Radio Lincolnshire to Howard Leader at Woodhall Spa's 1940's Day. Woodhall Spa is a village near to Stuart's home town of Boston, Lincolnshire and Stuart was there to provide some appropriate George Formby entertainment. He spoke confidently and knowledgeably about George Formby and the ukulele- banjo and gave the listeners of Radio Lincoln probably their first ever lesson on how to achieve the split- stroke! Stuart then played George Formby's most well known song, Leaning On A Lampost and received rousing cheers from the live audience. Speaking on BBC Radio can be a daunting prospect - but Stuart showed no nerves whatsoever and his informative and friendly manner really came over the radio waves. Radio Lincolnshire presenter Howard Leader was obviously impressed not only with Stuart's playing skills, but also with the way he supported Woodhall Spa's 1940's Day and his interest in the music and memory of George Formby. Well done Stuart, a first class job!
Stuart has made a second appearance on Radio Lincolnshire with a new studio broadcast of over 15 minutes. Again Stuart talked about his love of the banjo-uke and his interest in George Formby and performed without any accompaniment other than his banjo-uke. Again, absolutely no nerves and totally expert playing. His instrument sounds lovely, his mum must be so proud! Well done once again to Stuart, within such a short space of time he has projected himself to the highest levels of Formby expertise. Just brilliant!
