2013 Events Calendar
|June 15||Eric Taylor Concert at Kalākora Gallery
Eric Taylor is a stage musician, a lyrical genius and a master of the guitar. If you're familiar with the intricate Texas singer/songwriter jigsaw puzzle, you probably already know a lot about Taylor. If you're not familiar with Taylor by name, you've probably heard his songs performed by people such as Nanci Griffith and Lyle Lovett. He has created a multitude of fans and devotees that are legends themselves in the singer/songwriter realm, artists who have long considered Taylor to be a teacher and a lantern bearer whose time is long overdue. Concert begins at 7pm.
