Acclaimed musician Joe Taylor will be headlining a benefit concert at The Colleton Center on April 1 at 7 p.m.
All proceeds will go towards this important local institution, a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide for the renovation and restoration of the historic Hampton Street Elementary School building and for the development of a premiere arts and civic center, serving the interests and talents of the diverse Lowcountry residents and visitors.
Taylor has been heralded as a “funky mix of Jeff Beck and Chet Atkins” by Rust Magazine, and “Claptonesque” by The San Diego Troubadour. Taylor has worked both as guitarist and producer with everyone from Ahmet Ertegun, Dave Koz, Al B. Sure to Donna Summer. His solo albums on RCA Victor have achieved critical praise and top charting notoriety, and his chill-step series on RCA as Oracle were club hits. His first RCA album “Spellbound” topped the radio charts at number one, and his album “Accidental Sugar” was Most-Added at Smooth Jazz Radio, entering at number 17 on the Contemporary Instrumental charts.
Tickets to this unique performance are $10 and are available for purchase via colletoncenter.org/events or at the door. The Colleton Center is located at 494 Hampton Street, Walterboro.
