FIRE & RAIN + THE TAPESTRY OF CAROLE KING
...SNEAK PREVIEWS and BIOS
The members of Fire & Rain - The James Taylor Experience have toured America in various groups for the better part of the last three decades, and have now come together to pay tribute to singer/songwriter/guitarist James Taylor. The result is a night of fantastic songs and brilliant guitar-work, all fronted by Greg Pitts, a performer whose look and sound will take you back to the early days of 'Sweet Baby James'.
Growing up on Taylor's music, even in his teens Greg was a JT disciple on guitar and vocals. When he first met JT at a concert at West Point in 1981, the fortuitous meeting led Greg to spend years learning the distinctive finger-picking style employed by Taylor -- a style which he then incorporated into his live performances.
Since then Greg has performed the songs of James Taylor for audiences across Europe, Asia, and every corner of the United States. As an added attraction, this performance will feature singer/pianist Linda Kiley performing several selections in 'The Tapestry of Carole King', unforgettable songs made famous by one of music's leading composers and vocalists, whose songs helped define the times -- and create the times.
