Live Music on the Patio with the Dulcie Taylor Band
October 12, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Dulcie Taylor learned a hard music lesson at an early age – don’t leave your ukulele unattended in a porch chair at the beach. Some clueless teenager can sit on it and smash it to bits. The demise of her ukulele was a tough moment for ten-year-old Dulcie but that Christmas her Mother bought her a guitar and Taylor’s lifelong love of singing and songwriting began. In hindsight, a grown-up Taylor sees the smashed ukulele as something of a blessing in disguise…after all, she has shared the stage with a long and impressive list of artists, including Jerry Lee Lewis, Asleep at the Wheel, Guy Clark, John Gorka, and Kathy Mattea.
Black Iris Records has just released Dulcie Taylor’s sixth all-original CD, Better Part of Me. It is not a stretch to predict that her new release (and its videos) will receive the same critical praise and extensive airplay that her previous recordings have garnered. Most recently, the two videos from her 2015 CD, WIND OVER STONE got over 820,000 YouTube views and her 2014 CD, ONLY WORN ONE TIME reached No.1 on the Americana Song Chart at Roots Music Report.
The Midwest Record in Chicago says – “Sure fire killer stuff from a major talent.” Dulcie has twice won the New Times Music Award for Best Songwriter (New Times is published in San Luis Obispo, covering the Central coast of California). Her FREE OF THIS SORROW CD (2012) reached No. 1 at Amazon for Top-Rated Americana.
The first CD, DIAMOND & GLASS, won a Wammie (Washington DC Area Music Award) and also charted at Album Network’s non-commercial AAA. “It shines exactly like its title, Diamond & Glass.” Robert Oermann, Music Row.
MIRRORS AND WINDOWS, her second CD, was named one of the Best CDs of the Year by Soundstage, which puts her in the company of such artists as Brian Wilson, Los Lobos, and Wilco. Taylor has performed at a wide range of venues, including Mainstage Kerrville Folk Festival, The Bluebird (TN), and The Kennedy Center (DC).
