HAMBURG A native of Scotland, Al Stewart became a household name, during the British folk revival in the 60s and 70s. Stewart, a man familiar with international touring, will perform at the Palace Theatre in Hamburg on Nov. 7.
Stewart has produced more than 15 albums, since his introduction into the music realm. His most recent album, Sparks of Ancient Light, was released in 2008.
His song The Elf was released in 1966 and featured guitar-work from Yardbirds member Jimmy Page, who went on to be the guitarist for Led Zeppelin.
Stewart is a true folk singer; his songs tell tales of history, by referencing times such as the French Revolution, the life of Henry VIII, World War I and the Soviet Union.
He will perform with Dave Nachmanoff, a Californian folk musician who began his career in the late 90s.
Stewart and Nachmanoff will be joined at the Palace Theatre in Hamburg by singer and songwriter Amy Speace, who will open the show.
Nachmanoff will perform a solo-set, before performing alongside Stewart.
The Palace Theatre is a restored venue that seats 600 and maintains the acoustic structure built in the 20s.
Reserved seating is available, as well as a VIP package ticket that includes a front row seat, a signed CD and a meet-and-greet with the musicians. There will be free parking.
