Keith James: The Music of Yusuf – Cat Stevens.

Keith James presents an honest and loving reflection of the timeless and insightful music of Yusuf - Cat Stevens

It is hardly surprising that, to mark its 50th anniversary, Yusuf has entirely re-
recorded and re-released his remarkable Album Tea for the Tillerman, with
each of the unforgettable 11 songs re-conceptualized and re-imagined and
gifted back to us among all the uncertainties of 2020, 2021 and beyond.

During the early 1970s, amassed body of music from this hugely popular and
sincerely loved singer/songwriter 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, bars and on the world’s beaches to this day. Songs such as Wild World,
Father and Son, Moonshadow and Where do the Children play have been
covered by hundreds of Artists worldwide.

Keith James is a long standing, 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. Over 100 of these concerts have been performed across the UK..
