    When you think of singer-songwriters, who comes to mind first? How about folk-rock singer-songwriters? James Taylor is probably the best in the history of adult contemporary music. You almost certainly know some of his songs. Part of the singer-songwriter wave of the early 70s, he has written such hit songs as “Fire & Rain” and “You’ve Got a Friend.” His songs are usually described as somewhat melancholy, with a very soft touch and amazing harmony. The lyrics are beautiful, often giving you a touching mental image that fits the emotion of the music perfectly. James Taylor concert tickets are available for you today! Over a 40-year career, Taylor has won 6 Grammys, including 3 for “Best Pop Vocal Performance.” He has been a guest on numerous television shows, from the Simpsons to The West Wing. In 2000, he became a member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as well as the Songwriters Hall of Fame. This spring, Taylor and his band will perform all over the country on the “Down Home Tour.” Hurry and get your tickets today!
