A new live release and upcoming tour dates for New England’s troubadour.
Livingston Taylor’s career as a professional musician has spanned over 50 years, encompassing performance, songwriting, and teaching. Described as “equal parts Mark Twain, college professor, and musical icon,” Livingston maintains a performance schedule of more than a hundred shows a year, delighting audiences with his charm and vast repertoire of his 22 albums and popular classics.
Livingston has written top-40 hits recorded by his brother James Taylor and has appeared with Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Fleetwood Mac, and Jimmy Buffet. He is equally at home with a range of musical genres – folk, pop, gospel, jazz – and from upbeat storytelling and touching ballads to full orchestra performances.
In addition to his performance schedule, Livingston has been a full professor at Berklee College of Music for 30 years, passing on the extensive knowledge gained from his long career on the road to the next generation of musicians. Liv is an airplane-flying, motorcycle-riding, singing storyteller, delighting audiences with his charm for over five decades.
With lots of care, Liv and his team carefully designed and curated this boxed set containing: 5 CD’s with 87 live tracks, as well as the 54-page booklet packed with notes from Liv, rare and some never released photos. This project started by uncovering live tapes found in storage boxes. The live tracks are from concerts when Liv was starting out at 19 year old singing at Milton Academy in MA, then to his performances at folk clubs and coffeehouses around the country including venues such as The Bottom Line (NYC), Harvard Square and Orpheum Theater (MA), and radio shows such as the “King Biscuit Flower Hour” .
These 87 unreleased live recordings have never been released previously. Also included in the set is the award-winning documentary film “Livingston Taylor – Life Is Good“.
