Taylor recently released Listening, his first record in four years. Joining Taylor in concert will be his aunt, Kate Taylor.
The Taylors have deep ties to Chapel Hill and Carolina. James Taylor and his musical siblings grew up in Chapel Hill, where their father, Isaac, was dean of the UNC School of Medicine from 1964 to 1971. Isaac Taylor graduated from UNC in 1942. In 1989, the medical school’s Taylor Hall was named in his honor.
