Folkus: Julian Taylor w/Catriona Sturton

Sat, 26 Mar 2022 - Sat, 26 Mar

Time: 8:00PM

Julian Taylor is a songwriter at the top of his game, garnering a recent CFMA Solo Artist of the year. Taylor is an artist who defies genre, but this latest recording takes us back to his roots, evoking his childhood soundtrack of Lightfoot, The Band, and his grandfather’s classic country records, while being true to his own path as leader of multiple bands. Of West Indian and Mohawk descent, Taylor first made his name as frontman of Staggered Crossing in the early 2000s. Catriona Sturton is a multi-instrumentalist tour de force, bringing a sometimes tender, sometimes comic sensibility to her songs about mysteries, the blues, cats, and late night calls.
