Dr. Mike Daley Presents: The James Taylor Story 
Advance $30 / Door $35 *

Dr. Mike Daley and Jill Daley present another instalment of their popular lecture/concert series at Hugh’s Room Live with The James Taylor Story. Taylor’s music embodies the art of songwriting in its most personal and universal forms. He is a master at describing specific, even autobiographical situations in a way that resonates with people everywhere. In 1971, Taylor was on the cover of Time magazine, heralded as the harbinger of the singer-songwriter era. Over four decades later, his introspective lyrics and unique guitar playing still blaze a path to which young musicians aspire. He has sold over 100 million albums throughout his career and has earned 40 gold, platinum, and multi-platinum awards, multiple Grammy Awards and has been inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the prestigious Songwriters Hall of Fame. His songs have had a profound influence on songwriters and music lovers from all walks of life.

Mike Daley is a musicologist and sought-after lecturer on popular music history and his wife Jill is a full-time pianist at Canada’s National Ballet School and Musician-In-Residence at Church of the Redeemer. Mike and Jill will be joined by Will Reid for the evening on vocals.

These performances typically sell out quickly, so advance tickets are STRONGLY recommended.
