The talented singer-songwriter and folk artist Livingston Taylor charmed a sellout crowd at The Greenwich Odeum on Saturday. Taylor spun an entertaining array of yarns, while musically wooing his legion of longtime fans at the intimate venue nestled in downtown East Greenwich.
Taylor’s pedigree comes from a solid family of tremendously talented performers. His father was a singer, while his siblings include singer-songwriters James and Kate Taylor, and musician Alex Taylor.
With a career spanning over fifty years, Taylor has amassed an impressive catalog of endearing music. His most recognizable hits are “I Will Be In Love With You,” “First Time Love,” and “I’ll Come Running.” Over the years, he has appeared onstage with the likes of Linda Ronstadt and Jimmy Buffet.
With strong local ties, particularly Marta’s Vineyard, Taylor has taught at the Berklee College of Music in Boston for the past thirty years. He was joined onstage by former student, and opening act, gifted upstart Seth Glier.
Taylor sounded great, while delivering his audience with an evening of some “feel-good” entertainment. What’s Up Rhode Island was there to bring you this endearing night of homegrown folk music.
