ON Saturday, May 11, at Ledbury's Market Theatre, Keith James presents an honest and loving reflection of the timeless and insightful music of Cat Stevens (or Yusuf).

In the 1970s, Cat Stevens’ music 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 and on the world’s beaches to this day. Songs such as Wild World, Moonshadow and Where Do The Children Play have been covered by hundreds of artists worldwide.

Keith James is a 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. Keith has performed well over 100 of these concerts since 2017.

Tickets for the concert, which starts at 7.30pm, are £18 (£9 students) from themarkettheatre.com or phone 07967517125.
