Gary Stewart’s Graceland
Led by the legendary Leeds-based troubadour Gary Stewart (Gary Stewart Band/Hope and Social) and backed by his incredible six-piece band, this spectacular group of musicians come together to recreate Paul Simon’s landmark Graceland album in all its glory.
Expect to hear those magical songs, with their captivating stories, distinctive harmonies and South African rhythms brought to life in front of you with no detail spared; from the layers of guitars and percussion, right down to the legendary bass solos and maybe even some token dance moves – if you’re lucky!
Let the singing, dancing and nostalgia take hold and pretend you’re basking under the hot summer sun in Zimbabwe.
Gary Stewart and his band masterfully recreated not just the sound of Paul Simon’s Graceland album but also the energy and soul that makes the original recording such a huge joy to listen to. An ambitious and wonderful feat to achieve in a live performance. ‘ ~ Joe Rusby – Underneath the Stars Festival
