Isabel Taylor writes and performs original songs, both solo and with singer/songwriter Cara Bonnett (keyboard, vocals), Tom Ed White (viola, vocals), and Janet Hadler (cello). She also covers lesser-known songs by well-loved singer/songwriters, from acoustic folk and country traditions to the artists of today. Some of her inspirations include Nanci Griffith, Emmylou Harris, James Taylor, and Neil Young. Isabel’s sets comprise some songs you’ll recognize and many you won’t, but you’ll enjoy them all.
What a busy few months we had between June and October! Twenty-one performances, solo and group, indoors and out. We keep getting better and having more fun as we do. Last night was our last group gig of the year at The Goat at Fearrington Village, and we went out with a bang. Unplugged, up close, and uptempo. We couldn’t have asked for a better closer.
The next couple of months will give me time to record some of my new songs, get back to doing open mics (great venues for debuting songs), improving my guitar skills, and writing more.
As the year is winding down, I’m again (really, still) feeling grateful for all the opportunities this year, for the growth of the band both in number and skill, and for the continued support from fans, friends, family, and especially my husband, Keith. I’m especially grateful to Tom Ed White, Cara Bonnett, and Janet Hadler for all their contributions and dedication. I look forward to 2015 and know it will be another year for growing musicianship, building relationships, and even more new experiences. Here’s to that!
