Biography of Maggie Stewart; songs she composed.
Maggie Stewart was born in Banchory, but spent more time around Alford, Tarland and Aboyne. She travelled Deeside, Donside, Perthshire, Skye, Argyllshire and the Glasgow area with a horse and cart. She composed some short songs as well as 'The Horse and the Wagon' and another. The pony in the other song was a favourite, which had belonged to her late daughter, but was stolen. Maggie is no longer fit, and depends on medicine, but she used to sell clothes and bric-a-brac from a pack. She was also a street singer and played the box [melodeon]. Mention is made of her son, who lives with her.
