Join the Weill Center for an afternoon of incredible music with three amazing artists. Livingston Taylor, Tom Chapin, and EVA will appear together in a very special concert featuring some of the best in folk music.
Livingston Taylor has had a 40-year career spanning performance, songwriting and teaching. Born in Boston and raised in North Carolina, Livingston is the fourth child in a very musical family, perhaps most notable is his brother James Taylor. From his first record at the age of 18, he has continued to create well-crafted, introspective and original songs, earning him listeners worldwide. Livingston is also a full professor at Berkeley College of Music, where he has taught since 1989. Livingston’s latest album, Blue Sky, was released in the spring of 2014.
In a career that spans five decades, 23 albums and three GRAMMY awards, multi-talented singer/songwriter/guitarist Tom Chapin has covered an incredible amount of creative ground. In addition to his work as a recording artist and concert performer, Chapin has acted on Broadway, as well as extensively in films, television and radio. As a music-maker, Chapin has maintained two long and productive parallel careers, both as a highly respected contemporary folk artist and as a pioneer in the field of children’s music. He began performing professionally as a teenager in the early 1960s, playing in Greenwich Village folk clubs alongside his siblings Harry and Steve as The Chapin Brothers.
