Payomet is thrilled to have Livingston Taylor return to Wellfleet for a performance this December, with opener Zoe Lewis!
Taylor is not only a consummate musician and musical storyteller, but he is a humorist in the tradition of Will Rogers, taking the events of the day, or life’s many milestones, and intertwining them with funny interludes of social commentary between musical numbers. His relaxed onstage presence belies the depth of his musical knowledge, and fans might just as often be treated to a classic Gershwin or something from the best of Broadway.
We're so excited to get Dom Flemons back here for the 4th time in as many years! In his first three appearances here he starred with the Carolina Chocolate Drops, and now he's back with his own trio to add a special cachet to the Payomet Fall-Winter Music Series. Dom is one of the great American masters, a singer from a world and time beyond as well as a multi-instrumentalist who plays the bones, and the quills. He's a walking historical encyclopedia of early American music, from country and old-time blues to nearly forgotten African American folk music. And best of all --- he and his trio will have so much fun on stage that you'll think this December 27th concert is an early start on a New Years celebration. Dom is on the road solo with a new album, "American Songster," of which Full Time Blues has this to say: "Dom Flemons is a true virtuoso. A musician that is equally adept at singing, playing, and the craft of songwriting, Flemons enjoys testing his skills on a variety of musical instruments in a variety of musical genres." Come out and dig the American songbag with this unique musician—you'll be glad you did!
On Sunday February 15th, three music giants will travel to Wellfleet from Virginia for our first blues concert this season. Make that gospel, R&B, and raw electric blues. Now throw in some country, and a little funk. Join us --- as the inseparable Holmes Brothers --- together for over 40 years --- light up the Outer Cape with unparalleled artistry and authenticity. Winners of multiple blues awards, THe Holmes Brothers have performed for President Bill Clinton, and have recorded with Bruce Springsteen, Boby Dylan, Peter Gabriel and Odetta.
