The great Texas singer/songwriter Eric Taylor will bring his anecdotal songs and stories back to the Marshall Grange Hall for an encore performance at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 9.

“Eric is the real thing,” said Steve Earle.

Tickets are $12 in advance, $14 at the door and $10 for grange members and can be purchased at Cherry Records in Auburn, Main Street Music in Placerville, Rose’s Garden Café and the Golden Gecko Garden Center in Garden Valley, online at brownpapertickets.com or by calling 530-642-8671.

Taylor is a sage musician, a lyrical genius and a master of the guitar learning his licks in the Houston music scene from legends Lightnin’ Hopkins, Mance Lipscomb and Mississippi Fred McDowell and perfecting them playing with Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Robert Earl Keen, Lyle Lovett, Steve Earle and Nanci Griffith.

Last year he brought Lovett, Griffith, Denice Franke, Susan Lindfors Taylor, Marco Python Fecchio and James Gilmers to the Red Shack Recording Studio in Houston for two days to record a combination live record/retrospective record/celebration of friends which has been named one of the best 10 albums this year by “Texas Music Magazine” and is being mentioned as a possible candidate for a Grammy.

A mesmerizing performer, Taylor has been a featured artist at all the major venues and festivals around the world. He has headlined the prestigious Newport Folk Festival, played National Public Radio’s “Mountain Stage” and has appeared on “Late Night With David Letterman” with Nanci Griffith and “Austin City Limits” as the featured artist as well as with Lyle Lovett, Guy Clark and Robert Earl Keen.

Taylor is playing the Marshall Grange as part of his west coast tour promoting his brand new CD, “Live at the Red Shack.”

“If you miss an opportunity to hear Eric Taylor in concert, you have missed a chance to hear a voice I consider the William Faulkner of songwriting in our current time, and you will miss the rare opportunity to watch the hands of one of America’s most unusual guitarists, with lyrics that will nail your heart to your ear and mind. For me to say that Eric Taylor is one of the finest writers of our time is an understatement,” Griffith said.

You can hear some of his tunes at bluerubymusic.com.

The Grange Hall is located at 4940 Marshall Road in Garden Valley. Driving directions may be found at marshallgrange.org.
