KEITH JAMES. GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL.jpg Keith James presents the music of Yusuf - Cat Stevens

Keith James presents the music of Yusuf - Cat Stevens

Friday 23rd April, 7.30pm

An honest and loving reflection of the timeless and insightful music of Yusuf
– Cat Stevens.

The amassed body of music from this hugely popular and
sincerely adored singer/songwriter made for a collection of 'must have' records
across a whole generation. Tea for the Tillerman and Teaser and the Firecat
were on everyone's turntables and on every radio station, live versions
are played in concerts, bars and on the world's beaches to this day.

Songs such as Wild World, Father and Son, Moonshadow and Where do the Children play have been covered by hundreds of Artists worldwide.

Keith James, is a well-respected and inventive guitarist
singer/songwriter who specialises in performing intimate, carefully researched
biographic style concerts. He weaves the story of Cat Stevens' life from his
early pop career, life threatening illness and spiritual journey around a
performance of his well-crafted and memorable songs.

This concert will give you far more than just the music itself.....there is a huge amount of insight into the history and the spirit of Cat Stevens; his early pop career, his illness that changed him existentially and spiritually into an incredibly thoughtful and loving singer songwriter; such that his songs are remembered instantly for their uplifting sense of truth, promise and human fragility.

Much to talk about the background and embryo of each song.....some of which will be performed as all of us remember....and some, carefully and intuitively re-voiced - respectfully re-interpreted with rich, balanced guitar arrangements
and a more personal vocal approach.

Yusuf campaigns on many educational and humanitarian issues,he was awarded the 'Man of Peace' award by the Nobel Peace
Laureates. In 2015 and he received the Lifetime achievement award from BBC
Radio 2 and the Ivor Novello Award for outstanding song collection.
