James Taylor returns to Tanglewood with his All-Star Band
for performances on Monday, July 3, and Tuesday, July 4, 2017 each
at 8 p.m. in the Koussevitzky Music Shed. The July 4 concert will
be followed by a spectacular fireworks display over the Stockbridge
Bowl in celebration of the Independence Day holiday. Taylor's music
embodies the art of songwriting in its most personal and universal
forms. He is a master at describing specific, even
autobiographical situations in a way that resonates with people
everywhere. His iconic songs, including "Fire and Rain," "Country
Road," "Something in the Way She Moves," "Mexico," "Shower the
People," "Your Smiling Face," "Carolina In My Mind," "Sweet Baby
James," "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight," "You Can Close Your
Eyes," "Walking Man," "Never Die Young," "Shed a Little Light,"
among others, have had a profound influence on songwriters and
music lovers from all walks of life. Mr. Taylor, who regularly
performs to sold-out audiences at Tanglewood, has returned to the
festival 25 times since his first performance there in 1974.
As in past years, Kim and James Taylor will donate proceeds from the July 4 performance to Tanglewood.
