AL Stewart will play Pocklington Arts Centre as the smallest location on his 21-date autumn travels.

The Glaswegian folk-rock veteran will perform with his electric band The Empty Pockets on Thursday, October 24, on his Hits And Misses Tour.

Stewart, 73, played at the first ever Glastonbury Festival in September 1970 and was a leading player in the British folk revival of the Sixties and Seventies. He worked with Yoko Ono pre-John Lennon and shared a London apartment with a young Paul Simon. For the past year he has been touring the United States with The Empty Pockets.

Pocklington Arts Centre director Janet Farmer says: “It’s such a huge privilege to have secured a live date with the legendary Al Stewart for what will be a full band show, especially as we're the smallest venue on his whole tour, making for an amazing, intimate show.

"Tickets are selling fast, so I would recommend getting yours now or risk missing out on this incredible opportunity."

Stewart will combine such favourites as Year Of The Cat, Time Passages, On The Border, Nostradamus and Roads To Moscow with selection from a back catalogue that runs to nigh on 20 albums.

Those albums have featured such guest musicians as Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, Phil Collins, folk luminary Richard Thompson and Peter White, the jazz-fusion guitarist with whom he has enjoyed a 20-year collaboration.
