Tonight, Ben Taylor returns to The Barns joined by special guest Grace Weber in her Wolf Trap debut.
Ben Taylor was raised partially on Martha’s Vineyard, and partially on tour with his father, the legendary James Taylor: “I was always on a trip…the Colorado River or in the Grand Canyon or on a farm in New Mexico,” he recalls.
Famous Among the Barns (2003), Taylor’s successful second album, was recorded in a converted barn studio in Colorado, and its hit single “Day After Day” earned significant airtime on radio stations in the United States and abroad.
Taylor often performs on nationally broadcast TV shows including The Today Show, The Tonight Show, The CBS Morning Show, and Last Call with Carson Daily.
The first single from Listening (2012), Taylor’s latest album, is a soulful tour de force called “Oh Brother,” which features bluesy guitar, soaring organ, and a powerfully catchy hook.
"That's the heart of it. You want to attach something of importance to it so you want to write from your own experience. You always want to write the truth, ideally”—Taylor, on songwriting
Milwaukee native and New York-based singer Grace Weber began performing in gospel choirs at the age of 12. She released her soul-infused debut album Hope & Heart in 2011, which reached No. 8 on iTunes’ Singer/Songwriter chart.
Ben Taylor and special guest Grace Weber perform on Wednesday, October 10 at 8 pm. Don't miss your chance to see these two emerging singer/songwriters in the intimate setting of The Barns at Wolf Trap.
