In honour and loving reflection of the timeless and insightful music of Yusuf/Cat Stevens, Keith James, is a well respected and inventive guitarist singer/songwriter who specialises in performing intimate, carefully researched biographic style concerts.

In this concert, 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.

The amassed body of music from the hugely popular and sincerely adored Cat Stevens, 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.

But this concert will give you far more than just the music itself.
