Legendary Leeds-based troubadour Gary Stewart (Gary Stewart Band / Hope and Social) and his incredible six-piece band 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.
