Peter White and folk-rock singer Al Stewart reunite at Royal Albert Hall on October 15, 2013 for a special evening with a once-in-a-lifetime performance of Stewart’s classic Year of the Cat album in it’s entirety. White was a longtime member of Stewart’s band and remembers playing on this iconic recording: “It was my first time in a recording studio and I was blown away that it was Abbey Road Studios, home of the Beatles and the Pink Floyd!”.
The 1976 multi-million selling album Year of the Cat album, produced by Alan Parsons, was Al Stewart’s largest hit, peaking at #5 in the US and #38 in the UK.
Al Stewart will perform with a full band, Peter White serving as musical director. The show will open with Al along with various members of the band playing acoustic versions from his musical back pages. After a short intermission the band will return to perform the entire Year of the Cat album in sequence.
Songs from Year of the Cat:
Lord Grenville | On The Border | Midas Shadow | Sand In Your Shoes | If It Doesn’t Come Naturally Leave It | Flying Sorcery | Broadway Hotel | One Stage Before | Year of the Cat

Peter’s song “Here We Go” does it again! It not only charted as Billboard’s #1 Smooth Jazz Song for 2012 but also as Groove Jazz Music’s #1 song for 2012! Congratulations Peter, on another #1! Your dream of collaborating with David Sanborn came true and turned out to be a hit!
Groove Jazz Music’s chart includes all forms of Groove and Smooth Jazz Radio from all forms of radio (terrestrial, internet, satellite and HD).
Peter’s song “Here We Go” is Billboard’s #1 Smooth Jazz Song of the Year for 2012! For as long as Peter could remember, his bucketlist contained one wish- to one day collaborate with the great David Sanborn. When the opportunity arose, Peter jumped at the chance and wrote a duet specifically with Sanborn in mind- the song ended up being the title song to his latest album. “It was always a dream of mine to work with David,” says Peter “and that dream came true and now what an honour it is to get this accolade from Billboard.” Congratulations to Peter on this fine accomplishment!
