When: Thu., Aug. 11, 8 p.m. 2016
Here’s an extremely short list of some of the artists whom songwriter Eric Taylor has influenced: Lyle Lovett, Steve Earle, Nanci Griffith. We could go on about the beloved Texan, his storied career and the innumerable musicians his brilliantly narrative music has inspired. But perhaps we should just let a couple of them tell you. Steve? “He’s the real deal. Eric Taylor was one of my heroes and teachers when I started playing in Houston in the late 1970s.” Anything to add, Lyle? “I’m always the opening act when Eric is around.” Taylor is around this Thursday, August 11, at ArtsRiot in Burlington.
