With his Band
The Empty Pockets
After Al’s US tour in 2019 with his band The Empty Pockets, he spent most of2020 and 2021 sidelined due the COVID-19 pandemic. But in 2022, he came backfull force with a string of sold out shows in the United States and United Kingdom,and he even made his debut in Israel. In 2023, he’ll continue his trek with severalshows throughout the United States. He will be playing his old favorites, like YearOf The Cat, Time Passages, On the Border, Nostradamus and Roads To Moscow,along with selections from his deep catalogue.
The Scottish-born singer-songwriter has released nearly 20 introspective andlyrically powerful records featuring brilliant backing musicians (Jimmy Page, PhilCollins, Richard Thompson, Peter White, etc.). His biggest platinum successes,“Year Of The Cat” and “Time Passages”, were released in 1976 & 1978respectively. He’s had several top 20 singles, including the above-mentioned titles,as well as “On the Border” and “Song On The Radio”.
In Al’s own Words: “I'm just a folk singer that is interested in history and wine thatgot lucky with some hit records! It's as simple as that really. I was always a hugemusic fan and originally, I had wanted to be Brian Jones and then Bob Dylan, butthose two jobs were already taken. And in many ways, I'm still pretty much thesame troubadour that I was back in 1965. I still get a kick out of hearing theZombies, Hendrix or They Might be Giants on the radio.”
