Big Tom At Stewart's Music Shop

Big Tom McBride

We are greatly saddened to learn about the death of Big Tom McBride today.

A legend among men, we had the great privilege of welcoming Tom to the shop on several occasions in recent years. We were particularly honoured to have him perform during our 40th birthday celebrations and will always be delighted that he joined us on that special day.

In the over 40 years since the shop opened, we could easily chart the decades, hits, highs and lows with Big Tom’s music. From the vinyl release of Old Love Letters in the 70s, to the smash hit Four Country Roads tape in the 80s and the unforgettable Going Out the Same Way You Came In CD in 2005, we’ve shared every album with him and his legion of fans.

A gentleman, a talent and a King, he’ll be greatly missed. On behalf of everyone at Stewart’s Music Shop, we offer our condolences to his children and family.
