Cunard Sing "Sweet Baby James" on Transatlantic Crossing

If you are a fan of 1970s rock icons, and you might like to combine the music with a cruise, then we at World of Cruising think you are likely to appreciate this...

Cunard Line will host Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter James Taylor during Queen Mary 2’s 10th anniversary year in 2014, joining the flagship on August 27 for an eight-day Transatlantic Crossing from New York to Southampton via Halifax. The legendary singer and his band will headline two performances’ in the ship’s Royal Court Theatre during the voyage.

As a recording and touring artist, Taylor’s warm baritone is among the most recognised voices in popular music and his distinctive style of guitar-playing has been enormously influential. Over the course of his acclaimed song-writing and performing career, James has sold more than 100 million albums, earning gold, platinum and multi-platinum awards for classics ranging from ‘Sweet Baby James’ in 1970 to ‘Covers’, his own interpretation of tunes from the 50s, 60s and 70s, for which he was nominated for two Grammy Awards in 2009.
 
Fares for the crossing start from £1,599 per person, including outward flight to New York.
