Minnesota's own Emmy-award winning acoustic tunesmith, Michael Monroe, performs an evening of music by the tremendously popular Brit singer/songwriter, superstar. In the 70s, Monroe looked like Cat Stevens, performed Cat tunes, and even wanted to be him. He appreciates the opportunity perform his tribute to Cat Stevens.
Steven’s who’s music remains relevant five decades later said, ”Music can be healing...for what looks like a gigantic divide in this world, I feel I can point a way toward our common humanity again." Monroe’s shares this viewpoint and feels Cat tunes are especially timely today. Cat Stevens “had rare ability to combine the strength, fragility, and sometimes mystery of his highly personal compositions,” said the LA TIMES.
Michael Monroe has performed his original music for five decades. His hand-crafted Seaton guitars are made of 200 year-old reclaimed wood from the bottom of Lake Superior. These “works of art”, his rich vocals and crystal/bamboo flutes showcase his signature mellifluous sound. Expect the Best of Cat: Wild World, Peace Train, Father & Son, Hard Headed Woman, Where Do The Children Play, Can’t Keep It In …and of course, Moonshadow.
