Al Stewart Pic 4 performance

The legendary Scottish folk singer, Al Stewart, was back for his annual show at The City Winery.  He was accompanied by Dave Nachmanoff on guitar.  Al  performed a good mix of songs from his catalog of music.  His set started off with” The Palace Of Versailles,” an historic tune,  as he is known for writing these types of songs.  Other fine moments came when Al had Dave play piano on the song “Fields Of France.”  Al and Dave did a rip – roaring version of  “On The Border.” Al’s other songs included “Carol,” a really cool pop song from his album “Modern Times,” and “Soho (Needless To Say),” which he wrote about the seedy life of London’s Red Light District.  It was from his album “Past, Present And Future.”   Mr. Stewart always picks one song that he rarely  performs and tonight he chose ” Constantinople” from his record “24 Carrots.”  He even played piano on a fairly new song, and for the first time ever he played “Year Of The Cat,” cutting  into “Time Passages” and back.

It was truly a superb night of music as Al came back to perform a requested song, “End Of The Day,” which was fitting for the end of a perfect night of  music!

Al is also known as a wine connoisseur,  so he is pictured here holding his wine at  The City Winery.
