Council, is hosting An Evening with Livingston Taylor on Thursday, May 11 at the Woodstock Town Hall Theatre. The music will feature fan favorites and selections from Taylor’s new album Safe Home.
Taylor was born in Boston and grew up in North Carolina with a musical family that includes his brother, James Taylor. He recorded his first record at 18 years of age and since then has written numerous top 40 hits such as “I Will Be in Love with You,” “I’ll Come Running,” and “Boatman.” He is also a full professor at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he started teaching a course in stage performance in 1989. This past January18th was declared Livingston Taylor Day by Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker to honor his 50th year in music.
The new album, Safe Home, was released in March. Taylor’s website says the album “gives playful bend to musical classics like ‘Anything You Can Do’ and also presents Livingston originals such as ‘I Must Be Doing Something Right.’ Pull up a chair and give a listen to this guaranteed toe tapper of an album.”
The Dupont Brothers will open for Taylor. This indie folk-rock duo from Burlington has been on the road since 2013, performing all over the Northeast, mid Atlantic, South, and Midwest. They have released two records—“Heavy as Lead” (2015) and “A Riddle for You” (2016). You can check out their website (www.dupontbrothersmusic.com/) to learn more.
