Folk Heroes Coming to The Egg August 18th


Two of America’s well-loved folk musicians will be at The Egg on Sunday, August 18th. Livingston Taylor and Janis Ian will be on the same stage the same night for this double billing event.

Janis Ian is best known for her songs “Society’s Child” and “Seventeen.” Ian was extremely successful in the 1960s and 70s, winning grammy awards for her straight-talking writing style. A maverick in the field, she confronted issues considered taboo during the time, including interracial relationships. Relevant today still, Ian’s music confronts ugliness head-on with honesty and musicality that continues to inspire and refresh.

Taylor is the brother of singer-songwriter James Taylor. Best known perhaps for his hit “I Will Be In Love with You,” Livingston Taylor continues to perform between 70 and 80 shows a year.

The Egg is hosting both performers August 18th. Advance ticket purchase is recommended.
