Buttonwood Hosts Legendary Songwriter Eric Taylor and NHIC

This weekend at The Buttonwood Tree Performing Arts & Cultural Center:

Eric Taylor is a master storyteller and has been one of the finest southern songwriters for the last four decades. Influencing such well-known artists as Nanci Griffith, Lyle Lovett (both of whom have covered several of his songs) and Steve Earle, Taylor tours extensively throughout North America and Europe. He has appeared on Austin City Limits, Late Night With David Letterman, NPR’s “Morning Edition” and “Mountain Stage” and BBC Radio.

A mesmerizing performer whose shows will leave you wanting more.

“I’m always the opening act when I’m around Eric. I love his voice, and he has a great narrative quality and sense of detail. He sort of takes you out of your own reality and into the reality of his songs. It’s good writing no matter how you cut it.” – Lyle Lovett

“Eric Taylor is an enormous talent..poet, actor and truly one of the great writers of our time. His thoughtful and humorous introductions for his songs is great theater..and beautifully frame the gritty songs he sings. The evening with Eric was truly an enriching experience.” – R. Ralston, Coolwater Ranch Concerts
