At last, Allan Taylor! And about time, too, we must admit.
One of last of the great troubadours makes his first appearance for us and it seems kinda crazy that his debut hasn’t happened before. After all, here’s a class act tailor-made for the Kalamazoo.
Allan has been on the road for most of his life, crafting as he travels his gorgeous songs about love and those he calls the lost and the lonely.
Inspired as a kid in Brighton by Woody Guthrie and Davey Graham, Allan was barely out of his teens when he took off to make his name as a folk singer, first to London and the Troubador, Greenwich Village and then, all corners of the globe.
Now, 50 years and 26 albums later, the journey is far from over.
This gifted, mellow-voiced guitarist continues to pack in the crowds at concert halls across Britain, Europe and beyond.
The list of artists who have covered his songs bears testimony to his talent … The Fureys, Don Williams, Frankie Miller, the Clancy Brothers, Fairport Convention, Dick Gaughan, Nana Mouskouri and Francoise Hardy among them. There are 80 cover versions alone of his “It’s Good To See You.”
It certainly is, Allan. And well worth the wait.
