Hiss Golden Messenger’s M.C. Taylor returns to The Waldo Theatre

Event has passed

WALDOBORO – The Waldo Theatre is excited to welcome back Hiss Golden Messenger’s M.C. Taylor for an intimate solo performance July 21 at 7:30 p.m.

The North Carolina songwriter is returning to the Waldo after last year’s sold-out show. Taylor incorporates elements from the American songbook into his latest album “Quietly Blowing It” on Merge Records.

Throughout the album Taylor brings his keen eye to our “broken American moment” as he did on Hiss Golden Messenger’s critically acclaimed, GRAMMY® -nominated album “Terms of Surrender.”

“I went looking for peace,” said Taylor, evidenced by his existential ruminations about parenthood, joy, hope, and loneliness.Taylor’s music is at once familiar, yet impossible to categorize. The steady, churning acoustic guitar and mandolin, the steel guitar tracings, the bobbing and weaving organ, and a trusted cast of talented collaborators conspire to make “Quietly Blowing It” his most audacious and hopeful work yet. 

Concessions, including beer and wine will be available at the show. Doors open at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $30 in advance online and $35 on the day of the show. A limited number of front row seats are available. $1 from every ticket goes to support the Durham, NC Public Schools Foundation whose mission is to foster community support for public schools and invest in our students, educators, and families to ensure success and equity for every student.
