Fundraiser Keith James in Concert – the Music of Yusuf / Cat Stevens

Folk, pop and rock

, 7.30pm

Doors & bar open: 6.45pm

It is hardly surprising that, to mark its 50th anniversary, Yusuf has entirely re-recorded and re-released his remarkable Album Tea for the Tillerman, with each of the unforgettable 11 songs re-conceptualized and re-imagined and gifted back to us among all the uncertainties of 2020 and beyond. (Release September 2020)

During the early 1970s, the music of this hugely popular and sincerely loved 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 long-standing, well-respected and inventive concert performer who specialises in playing intimate, carefully researched biographic style concerts of those he has studied and revered as writers over the years. He weaves the story of Cat Stevens’ life from his early pop career, life-threatening illness and spiritual journey around a performance of his beautifully-crafted and memorable songs.

Menuhin & Grappelli: The Legacy

with Christian Garrick, Peter Fisher (Violins) and friends

, 7.30pm

Doors & bar open: 6.45pm

In a very special programme favourite British fiddlers Christian Garrick and Peter Fisher return to pay homage to two fiddling giants, Yehudi Menuhin and Stephane Grappelli.

In the 1970s Menuhin and Grappelli embarked on one of the most unlikely yet memorable, globally successful classical-jazz crossover collaborations of all times. Between the years of 1973 and 1985 they recorded a staggering 100 tracks across seven different albums for EMI. The unique and unforgettable partnership of two of the 20th Century’s most celebrated violinists is the major focus for this gala concert.

Menuhin and Grappelli's legacy is brilliantly rekindled by two of today's finest fiddlers, Christian Garrick and Peter Fisher, who appositely mirror the original protagonists with their devilishly dazzling skill on four strings, supported by John Horler - piano, Alec Dankworth - double bass and Tom Hooper - drums
