Enjoy Music by Shawn Taylor
November 15 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST
Join us in the tasting room for live music by Shawn Taylor.
With a thumping thumb, dancing fingers, wailing harp, deep, gritty, soul stirring vocals and poetic blue collar lyrics, Taylor’s songs ooze American roots; wandering roots. He’s drawn comparisons from Tom Waites to Ray Lamontagne, Bruce Springsteen to Chris Smither, but his original songs are colored by the experiences of his own working class, wandering roots. He’s been an oysterman, carpenter, hitchhiker, homeowner, familly man, Appalachian Trail ‘thru-hiker’ and a performing musician and song writer, for over twenty years. He plays venues from New England to Nashville and has shared the stage with artists such as, Maria Muldaur, Peter Mulvey, Vance Gilbert, Garnet Rodgers and Caravan of Thieves. He is currently working on his fourth CD and maintaining a busy performance schedule.
His keen eye, soul-drenched vocals and steadfast acoustic fingerpicking punctuates his musical canvas with a skillful, heartfelt flair reminiscent of troubadours John Prine, John Gorka and Bob Dylan. But make no mistake, Taylor is his own voice. With three albums under his belt and another on the way, Shawn Taylor is one of the finest singer-songwriters on the scene today.”
