Alistair Sherwood performs in Concert or Cabaret Style and will entertain you with the inspiring lyrics and melodies of the American Troubadours by paying tribute to the Songs and Stories of this highly prolific period 1968-1978.
This Singer/Songwriter period was an exciting moment when a generation of great artists were drawn together in Southern California. The famous West Hollywood club, The Troubadour, became the home for the rise of the singer-songwriter, a mecca that drew artists as prolific and influential as James Taylor and Kris Kristofferson.
Earl's Court London also has its very own Troubadour and during the 60's was the wild west frontier of bohemian Chelsea and saw this continental cafe centre of rebellion rise with the revolution of a new melodic and poetic acoustic music. Bob Dylan's first performance in London was at The Troubadour. Paul Simon and Tom Paxton also played at this historical artistic institution.
Alistair plays acoustic guitar / classical guitar / ukulele / banjo / Harmonica / Tambourine and Foot Stomp to deliver a unique accompaniment to these troubadour songs. His live performance is a humorous and captivating experience as he transports you back in time anywhere between 1968-78
