You won’t want to miss one of the biggest names in both Rock and Folk music, Al Stewart, who will be appearing at your McComb/Bruchs Performing Arts Center on Friday, October 17th at 7:00 PM with a remarkable show entitled “An Acoustic Evening with Al Stewart”. Al will be joined for the magical evening of stories and song by incredible guitarist David Nachmanoff. The performance is being sponsored by Moose Inn, Dogger’s Bar & Lanes, WAUH Radio, and Gary & Kay Christensen. A special “Moosetoberfest” discount package is offered with the show, which provides a wonderful day of food and entertainment at great savings the day following the concert.
By the time he was 22 Al Stewart had met the Beatles and played John Lennon’s guitar, opened for The Rolling Stones, shared an apartment with Simon & Garfunkel, and recorded with Jimmy Page. Stewart came to stardom as part of the folk revival of the late 60’s and 70’s combining folk-rock music with delicately woven tales in hits like “Year Of The Cat”, “Time Passages”, “On The Border”, and “Song On The Radio”.
