Scottish singer-songwriter Stewart performs his multi-million-selling album, Year of the Cat, almost 40 years after its release. Stewart was a key figure in the British folk revival of the 1960s and 1970s, played the first ever Glastonbury Festival in 1970, performed alongside Cat Stevens, Bert Jansch and Van Morrison, and shared a flat with Paul Simon. On Year of the Cat, "Stewart tackles prog-rock lyrical themes with a musical approach that comes off as adventurous without being pretentious, mysterious without being melodramatic. And, once upon a time, accessible enough to become radio hits," says Paste Magazine.

With the help of inspiring, famous gingers we know and love, like: Ed Sheeran, Ron Weasley, Prince Harry and Disney characters, James will parody his way through his chorus of appeal; pun his audience into satirical submission, whilst he gets everyone on board with his message, that Ginger really Is The New Black.
