Livingston Taylor is endlessly interesting and entertaining. It’s no wonder that students clamor to take the singer-songwriter’s class on stage performance at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he has been a professor for decades.
His concert Friday night at Musikfest Café was part storytime, part performance. And all happy and upbeat.Taylor, younger brother of James, sauntered onto stage with his trademark grin and bow tie and launched into a story about the steel industry and the life of steel workers and the complicated relationship between the two and with society. He said he was in awe of the sight of the blast furnaces behind him and commented on them frequently during the show.
