Boston’s mayor, Marty Walsh, and Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker declared last January 18 Livingston Taylor Day, marking the singer-songwriter’s 50th year of making music. Raised in North Carolina in a musical family, including brother James Taylor, the Boston-born performer released his first record at age 18 and hasn’t slowed down since. Taylor has penned such Top 40 hits as “I Will Be in Love With You” and “First Time Love.” This year, he released an album of original tunes and classic covers called Safe Home. Taylor taps into folk, pop, gospel and jazz sounds Thursday at the Woodstock Town Hall Theatre. Burlington indie-folk duo the DuPont Brothers open.
