Livingston Taylor has enthralled audiences for 50 years with a diverse original repertoire of country, folk, bluegrass, and blues. His Top 40 hits “I Will Be in Love with You,” and “I’ll Come Running” launched his career, and a steady song output has characterized his performances ever since. Liv has toured with Linda Ronstadt, Jimmy Buffett, and Fleetwood Mac among many others, but his fans most often come to see him to experience the winning combination of raconteur, balladeer, and pure fun music making that characterize his concerts. Livingston’s fourteenth album, Last Alaska Moon is out now. For more information, please visit http://www.livtaylor.com.

Al Stewart is a singer-songwriter and folk-rock musician who rose to prominence as part of the British folk revival in the 1960s and ‘70s. He developed a unique style of combining folk-rock songs with delicately woven tales of characters and events from history. Stewart is best known for his 1976 hit single Year of the Cat and its 1978 platinum follow-up Time Passages, both of which brought him worldwide acclaim. A key figure in British music, Stewart played at the first-ever Glastonbury Festival in 1970, knew Yoko Ono before she met John Lennon, and even shared a London flat with a young Paul Simon. He has released 16 studio and three live albums, and continues to tour extensively through North America and Europe. His latest release is Uncorked.
