Yusuf / Cat Stevens will celebrate the 50th anniversary of his 1970 albums with the virtual CatSong Festival, which will feature performances from Haim, Feist and many more.

CatSong Festival is a virtual livestream event that will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Yusuf / Cat Stevens' Tea for the Tillerman and Mona Bone Jakon albums.

The event takes place later this week (5 December), and will see a huge range of artists perform covers from his entire catalogue, including Haim, Feist, Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Matt Sweeney, Sad13, Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson, Brandon Boyd of Incubus, Passenger, Imelda May and more.

Yusuf / Cat Stevens says of the event, "It's great to see and hear these covers of my songs given new life. There's no better honour for a songwriter than to have his songs performed by talented musicians with such love and sincerity. Thank you."

CatSong Festival takes place on Saturday (5 December) from 8pm GMT via Yusuf / Cat Stevens' YouTube channel.
