He was for 30 years Borough Organist of Kirklees, playing concerts on the famous Father Willis organ, and building up a large and enthusiastic following. In recognition of this he has been given the title Organist Emeritus.

A recent recording of music for trumpet and organ with Tom Osborne has been enthusiastically received.

More About Gordon

“Gordon Stewart is a marvellously engaging performer. He almost literally runs onto the stage, and before he plays a note transmits a sense of energy, fun and anticipation. This touch of showbiz and the scattering about of funny stories prepares you to fully enjoy yourself. Gordon’s ‘show’ is very visual, but nothing of this style of delivery detracts from the seriously good musicianship of his performance. On the contrary, it energises and places in the mainstream an instrument which, certainly in the eyes of the young and the unchurched, can seem stuffy and dull……Gordon Stewart is a vibrant and accomplished player, at one with his instrument and his audience, whom he delighted from beginning to end.” Organ Australia
