Al Stewart, the legendary folk and pop singer/songwriter best known for his multi-platinum selling albums, “Year Of The Cat” and “Time Passages,” headlines the 2nd annual Mossbrae Music Festival on July 19 at the Dunsmuir City Park Botanical Gardens. Gates open at 3:30 p.m.; the show begins at 4:30 p.m.

A selection of gourmet sandwiches, salads, fruits, desserts, hot foods, wines, microbrews and sodas will be available.

The event is a fundraiser for the Dunsmuir Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center, sponsored in part by Nestle Waters North America, PremierWest Bank, US Bank, Mercy Medical Center, Mt. Shasta and Dunsmuir Rotary.

Considered one of the preeminent lyricists of our time, Al Stewart’s songs are adorned with intriguing melodies and cover a broad range of thought-provoking themes and emotions.

In the spellbinding tradition of his signature songs, “Year of the Cat,” “Time Passages,” “On the Border,” and “Nostradamus,” among many others, Al’s latest musical short stories are both lyrically meaningful and insidiously catchy. Hear them on the CD, “A Beach Full of Shells.”

There is limited capacity with general admission lawn seating. Bring a blanket or chairs. No coolers allowed. Car pooling is encouraged.

Tickets are available in Dunsmuir at the chamber of commerce and PremierWest Bank; Bog Bean Books & Music in Redding; and by phoning 530-918-4804.
