  •  Eric Taylor is a master storyteller and has been one of the finest southern songwriters for the last four decades. Influencing such well-known artists as Nanci Griffith, Lyle Lovett and Steve Earle, Taylor tours extensively throughout North America and Europe. He has appeared on Austin City Limits, Late Night With David Letterman, NPR's "Morning Edition" and BBC Radio. A mesmerizing performer whose shows will leave you wanting more.
    On July 16, Taylor brings his concept of song theatre — spoken word ingeniously intertwined with masterfully crafted songs — to The Fire Room at Picks Gallery in Osage Beach. 
    Taylor’s performance will begin a 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20. For more information, call (573)348-9100.
    "Taylor may sing of the past, of bar rooms and hay fields and even Johnny Cash, but his characters want the same things we do. They want love and redemption. They want some fun and happiness. They want respect and sometimes even a little vengeance. Taylor's people are just like us, it's just that their tales are exquisitely told," wrote Al Kaufman of the Atlanta Music Guide.
