Isabel Taylor writes and performs original songs, both solo and with fellow local musicians. 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.
I recently had the great pleasure of performing at a private event — a beach retreat — sponsored by Pinnacle View. The audience was small and intimate — about ten women in all, seated within a few feet of me, all very present and attentive. The evening was a mixture of performance, story-telling, and sing-along, full of laughter and joy. There were even a few tears (mine!). Engaging with an audience that way was an entirely new experience, and one I found immensely rewarding. If a house concert is anything like this, I see one in my future.
