Livingston Taylor

a a
Livingston Taylor picked up his first guitar at age 13, beginning a 40-year career that has encompassed performance, songwriting, and teaching. Born in Boston and raised in North Carolina, Livingston is the fourth child in a very musical family that includes Alex, James, Kate and Hugh. Including top-40 hits “I Will Be in Love with You” and “I’ll Come Running,” to “I Can Dream of You” and “Boatman,” both recorded by his brother James, Livingston’s creative output has continued unabated. His musical knowledge has inspired a varied repertoire, and he is equally at home with a range of musical genres–folk, pop, gospel, jazz–and from upbeat storytelling to touching ballads. He is a natural performer, peppering his shows with personal stories, anecdotes, and ineffable warmth that connect him to his fans. Liv's relaxed on-stage presence belies the depth of his musical knowledge, and fans may often be treated to a classic Gershwin or something from the best of Broadway. As a full professor at Berklee College of Music since 1989, Livingston Taylor shares his experiences and knowledge of professional touring with young artists, just beginning to hone their skills. Pick up a copy of his book, "Stage Performance," drawn from those classes! Singer-songwriter and Alaska-to-Boston transplant Chelsea Berry opens.
