Al Stewart will be performing an acoustic version of his classic album Year Of The Cat in it’s entirety. The album first released in September of 1976 was the commercial breakthrough for Al in both Europe and the United States. The show will also feature Al with his long time collaborator Dave Nachmanoff playing acoustic versions from his musical back pages.
Stewart came to stardom as part of the legendary British folk revival in the sixties and seventies, and developed his own unique style of combining folk-rock songs with delicately woven tales of the great characters and events from history.
Al Stewart had released nineteen studio albums between Bedsitter Images in 1967 and Sparks of Ancient Light in 2008 and continues to tour extensively around the US, and Europe. His most recent release 2009’s Uncorked with long time collaborator Dave Nachmanoff contains unplugged versions of his eclectic catalogue.
He is perhaps best known for his hit Year of the Cat from the platinum album of the same name and the platinum follow up album Tim Passages. But his career spans four decades as a key figure in British music. He played at the first ever Glastonbury Festival in 1970, worked with Yoko Ono pre-Lennon and shared a London apartment with a young Paul Simon.
