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.

Isabel is often accompanied by singer/songwriter Cara Bonnett (keyboard, vocals), Tom Ed White (viola, vocals), and Janet Hadler (cello).

Guitar camp newbie

Last month I had the pleasure of participating in a weekend-long guitar camp led by patient and talented instructors Rolly Brown, Danny Gotham, and Jon Shain. I’ve been wanting to improve my guitar skills, and this camp was the perfect way to expose myself to more music theory and techniques. I’m working hard to incorporate what I learned into my songs. I think my favorite aspect of the camp was connecting with a community of musicians and making new friends. I’m already looking forward to next year’s camp.

With instructors and fellow participants at the second annual Great Guitar Camp in Durham, NC.

Please check my Dates page to see where I’m playing next. I’ve been doing a lot of solo gigs in order to focus on improving my performance, but I’m teaming up with Tom Ed White on Feb. 28 for a show in Cary.
