An Acoustic Evening with Al Stewart, Rachael Sage opens

Event Date: 
Wednesday, October 24, 2012 - 8:00pm

Scottish singer-songwriter folk rock legend Al Stewart first came to stardom as part of the British folk revival of the 1960s and 1970s. Best known for his 1976 hit single “Year of the Cat,” Stewart has released sixteen studio and three live albums since his debut album in 1967. In his latest release, Uncorked, Al partnered with Dave Nachmanoff to take a trip through Stewart’s musical back pages, consciously choosing not to replicate any of the tracks from his 1992 release.

This October, Stewart shares the stage with Rachael Sage. A soulful vocalist and innovative keyboardist, the singer/songwriter and producer has become one of the busiest touring artists in independent music, performing 150+ dates a year with her band The Sequins throughout the US, UK, Europe and Asia. She has earned a loyal following for her infectious melodies, poetic lyrics, and often-outrageous, colorful stage banter. She has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and received numerous songwriting awards including The John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Grand Prize) and several Independent Music Awards and OUTMusic Awards.
