Al and the Pockets will be joined by saxophonist Marc Macisso. He will be playing his old favorites favorites Year Of The Cat, Time Passages, On the Border, Nostradamus and Roads To Moscow along with selections from his deep catalogue.
The Scottish-born singer-songwriter has released nearly 20 introspective and lyrically powerful records featuring brilliant backing musicians (Jimmy Page, Phil Collins, Richard Thompson, Peter White, etc.). His biggest platinum successes, “Year Of The Cat” and “Time Passages”, were released in 1976 & 1978 respectively. He’s had several top 20 singles, including the above-mentioned titles, as well as “On the Border” and “Song On The Radio”.
Al was born in 1945 in Glasgow. He started his musical career playing guitar in various bands but after hearing Bob Dylan, decided his path should be that of a lyricist. His first of a long list of hugely successful albums; 'Bedsitter Images', was released in 1967. The famous 'Year of the Cat' was released in 1976 and became his first platinum album in the USA. While he has not released a new album since 2008's 'Sparks Of Ancient Light', he continues to tour and please his loyal fan base.
