This week on Art of the Song our guest is Livingston Taylor. Born in Boston and raised in North Carolina, Livingston is the fourth child in a very musical family that includes Alex, James, Kate, and Hugh. He picked up his first guitar at the age of 13, which began a 50-year career that has encompassed performance, songwriting, and teaching.
Livingston recorded his first record at the age of 18 and has continued to create original songs that have earned him listeners worldwide. According to a quote from his “Best of Liv Live” album, “It’s true, I worked hard and practiced a lot, but above all else, I was held by a loving, generous universe: my creative seed fell on plowed ground and got to grow.” We visited with Liv backstage before his concert at the Falmouth Academy in Massachusetts.
Art of the Song can be heard Thursday nights at 11:00 pm on KRCB FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the go - download the FREE KRCB mobile app from the App Store & Google Play!
