Renowned performer returns to the Manor House with gig that will benefit UNICEF


Oct 7, 2018

Guitarist and singer-songwriter Keith James will return for his third show at a County Durham venue later this week.  James will bring his renowned ‘Music of Yusuf/Cat Stevens’ show to the Old Court Room in the Grade II listed 18th Century Manor House in Sedgefield on Saturday 27 October, and has pledged to donate a percentage of the profits from the gig to UNICEF’s Syrian children’s appeal.

Keith James is a well-respected and inventive guitarist singer/songwriter who specialises in performing intimate, carefully researched biographic style concerts.  James has already performed two popular shows at the Manor House, interpreting the work of Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake.  For his third show at the venue, he will be weaving the story of Cat Stevens’ life from his early pop career, life threatening illness and spiritual journey, around a performance of his most memorable songs, such as Wild World, Father and Son, Where do the Children Play? and Moonshadow.  Between songs, James will also share insights into different aspects of the life and work of Cat Stevens/Yusuf.

The show will start at 7:00pm.  Tickets cost £15 and there are still a few available at www.wegottickets.com/event/439769.  For further information about the Manor House and its events programme, call 01740 629264, email events@manorhousesedgefield.co.uk, visit www.manorhousesedgefield.co.uk / www.facebook.com/manorhousesedgefield, or follow @ManorHouse1707 on Twitter.
