Year of the Cat Hit Maker Returns to City
Al Stewart celebrates more than fifty years in the music industry
Hull New Theatre celebrates the Year of the Cat this August as singer-songwriter Al Stewart makes a welcome return to the city.
For more than fifty years this stalwart of the British music industry has entertained fans across the world with his unique folk-rock sound delicately woven with tales of characters and events from history.
Stewart, who found fame during the sixties and seventies; played at the first Glastonbury Festival in 1970; worked with Yoko Ono pre-Lennon and shared an apartment with a young Paul Simon, boasts one of the most extensive back catalogues in the business having recorded 19 studio albums between Bedsitter Images in 1967 and Sparks of Ancient Light in 2008.
He returns to the city on 7 August to perform an acoustic set featuring classic and lesser known tracks from his musical inventory, accompanied by long-time collaborator Dave Nachmanoff and joined by Guitarist Tim Renwick.
Tickets for Al Stewart at Hull New Theatre on 7 August are on sale now. Book at the Hull City Hall Box Office, call 01482 300 306 or visit the website www.hulltheatres.co.uk to book online.
