Every year, the District hosts a variety of events, bringing the community and members together, to celebrate the arts and culture while building a deeper connection within the community.
Al Stewart teams up with the full backing band, The Empty Pockets.
Stewart came to prominence as part of the British folk revival of the late ‘60s and ‘70s and had No. 1 hits with “Year of the Cat,” “On the Border,” “Time Passages,” and “Nostradamus.” He performed at the first ever Glastonbury Festival in 1970, worked with Yoko Ono before there was a Lennon, and shared an apartment with Paul Simon. He performed alongside Van Morrison and Cat Stevens. He has released 19 studio albums and is a popular touring artist who weaves his love of history and films into his songs. The beginning though, was when he was 11 or 12 and Elvis Presley and rock ‘n roll arrived.
Special Guests the Empty Pockets sound is built upon a strong foundation of the timeless Americana, Blues, and Motown Soul that came before them; an old-school sensibility showcased by multiple lead singers, rich harmonies, and skilled instrumentalists.
