Al Stewart & The Empty Pockets

Al Stewart and his band The Empty Pockets will be playing old favorites like “Year Of The Cat”, “Time Passages”, and “On the Border”, along with selections from throughout his career. The Scottish-born singer-songwriter has released nearly 20 introspective and lyrically powerful records featuring brilliant backing musicians (Jimmy Page, Phil Collins, Richard Thompson, Peter White, etc.). His biggest platinum successes, “Year Of The Cat” and “Time Passages”, were released in 1976 & 1978 respectively, and he’s had several other top 20 singles including “On the Border” and “Song On The Radio”. “I'm just a folk singer that is interested in history and wine that got lucky with some hit records! It's as simple as that really. I was always a huge music fan and originally, I had wanted to be Brian Jones and then Bob Dylan, but those two jobs were already taken. And in many ways, I'm still pretty much the same troubadour that I was back in 1965. I still get a kick out of hearing the Zombies, Hendrix or They Might be Giants on the radio.”

Al Stewart
“Dream like, poetic lyrical wordplay is the hallmark of Al Stewart, who started as a skiffle-mad kid from the British Isles, and has been consistently compelling over his six decade career.”
