Back to the Bedsit Tour 2017

Al Stewart

Featuring Dave Nachmanoff & Tim Renwick

Sage One

For fifty years, Al Stewart has been writing and singing songs. This concert sees him playing acoustic versions from his musical back pages going all the way back to the bedsit with Bedsitter Images. He will be accompanied by his long-time collaborator Dave Nachmanoff and guitarist Tim Renwick.

Stewart came to stardom as part of the legendary British folk revival in the sixties and seventies, and developed his own unique style, combining folk-rock songs with delicately woven tales of the great characters and events from history.

Al Stewart released nineteen studio albums between Bedsitter Images in 1967 and Sparks of Ancient Light in 2008. His most recent release in 2009, 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 Time Passages. 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.
