Biography  
SM_Empire_3
 Now well into his fifth decade as a professional musician and songwriter, New Brunswick native Stewart MacDougall continues to be one of Alberta's most diverse performers. Before pursuing a solo career in 1997 he was best known for his keyboard and vocal work with Laura Vinson, k.d. lang, Ian Tyson, and Great Western Orchestra. His songs have been recorded by all of these artists and a number of others including Sneezy Waters and  Randy Travis. A later collaboration with Tyson produced the title song for Ian’s 2008 CD Yellowhead to Yellowstone and Other Love Stories. MacDougall’s discography includes three solo albums: Gathering Time, heresay and Ghost Trains. He also appears on  the  Alberta all-star compilation, Sorrow Bound: Hank Williams Re-Examined  and The Gift, A Tribute to Ian Tyson, which features performances by various Tyson alumni and admirers. The Thorniest Rose, a download single was released in January 2012.

Ghost Trains / All of the Songs and Some of the Story

In its usual incarnation as a stage play, Mansel Robinson's ode to romance and the Canadian railroad is delivered by his character Dougie McCrea, the narrative punctuated with his blank verse and songs written with Stewart MacDougall. This adaptation for cabaret presents the song cycle in concert with poetic vignettes from the spoken text, all performed by MacDougall, supported by four musicians and visual images created by Tim Lee. The debut performance was presented by Festival Place, Sherwood Park, Alberta, November 14, 2004
