Chip Taylor at Calvary United Church-SOLD OUT
Chip Taylor, the man who wrote some of the biggest hits of the 60s and 70s, including Wild Thing and Angel of the Morning, will be presenting a very special concert at Calvary United Church Kingston on Thursday March 8 at 7:30 pm.
Songwriters Hall of Fame 2016 inductee Chip Taylor has been writing and performing for nearly 60 years and shows no sign of slowing down. The New York Times says it best - If lyou only know him as the as the guy who wrote Wild Thing and Angel of the Morning you dont know him! Chip Taylor is making some of the most distinctive acoustic music around today.
Chip Taylors material has been covered by everyone from Anne Murray, Emmylou Harris, Aretha Franklin and Linda Ronstadt to The Troggs, The Hollies, Waylon Jennings, Juice Newton, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. He's also an engaging, funny storyteller, and Calvary United Church is the perfect intimate setting for his wry sense of humour - one of Americas finest songwriters as well as a masterful singer and performers says Rolling Stone.
Chip Taylor enjoys elder statesman stature within the Americana, contemporary folk and singer-songwriter scenes as an artist in his own right as well as in collaboration on albums and in performance with John Prine, Carrie Rodriguez, Kendel Carson and John Platania. In a remarkable and prolific run, Taylor has released nearly an album a year since 1995, each rising high on the Americana chart. As UKs The Guardian notes, Chip Taylor, like Johnny Cash, is well worth rediscovering by a new generation.
2015's The Little Prayers Trilogy, was among the best-reviewed albums of his long career. Mojo called it "a masterpiece while Uncut said it was the Crowning glory of a storied career and placed it on its Best of 2015 list. Country Music People gave it Five stars .. nothing comes close.
As Taylors muse continues to fire on all pistons, musical tastemakers agree that fans and listeners should tune their ears into the continuing creativity of a true musical master. If names like Willie Nelson, Guy Clark, Kris Kristofferson and Townes Van Zandt mean anything to you, you should make a point of discovering Chip Taylor, urges music critic Anthony DeCurtis. Whether you know it or not, hes earned his way to that exalted status"
