EXETER RESPECT 2018 LINE UP
Gary Stewart’s Graceland
We are pleased to announce the first confirmed act for this year’s Exeter Respect Festival!
Led by the legendary Gary Stewart and backed his incredible 6 band, this spectacular group of musicians come together to 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.
Let the singing, dancing and nostalgia take hold and pretend you’re basking under the hot summer sun in Zimbabwe.
Gary Stewart & his band masterfully recreated not just the sound of Paul Simon’s Graceland album but also the energy and soul that makes the original recording such a huge joy to listen to.
‘An ambitious and wonderful feat to achieve in a live performance.’ ~ Joe Rusby – Underneath the Stars Festival
