Al Stewart
Part of the late 60s London folk scene w/ Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Roy Harper & Richard Thompson, best known for Year of the Cat, Time Passages, On The Border
Iron Horse Music Hall

By the time he was 22 Al Stewart had met the Beatles and played John Lennon’s guitar, opened for the Rolling Stones, shared an apartment with Simon & Garfunkel, recorded with Jimmy Page, spent a year playing guitar for Yoko Ono and co-producing her film #Four, and put a young Cat Stevens on stage at Les Cousins where he was master of ceremonies. Stewart came to stardom as part of the folk revival of the late 60′s and 70′s, and developed his own distinctive style of combining folk-rock music with delicately woven tales of the great characters and events of history. He is best known for his #1 hit “Year of the Cat” from the platinum album of the same name, and his follow-up album “Time Passages,” which also went platinum. Al continues to tour extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe, providing his fans with the music and personality that they have come to love so well.
