Al Stewart kicks off the Sonoma Community Center’s 2014 Winter Concert Series on Saturday, Jan. 11, on the Rotary Stage in Andrews Hall.

The Winter Concert Series includes 11 concerts running through the end of March.

Stewart, who starts the series, came to stardom as part of the folk revival of the late 1960s and ’70s, and developed his own distinctive style of combining folk-rock music with delicately woven tales of the great characters and events of history. He is best known for his #1 hit, “Year of the Cat,” from the platinum album of the same name, and his follow up album, “Time Passages,” which also went platinum.

The rest of the lineup includes:

• Black & White Jazz on Saturday, Jan. 18.

• John Jorgenson performs Saturday, Jan. 25.

• Black & White Jazz return on Saturday, Feb. 1.

• The International Belly Dance Show takes the stage on Saturday, Feb. 8.
