Allan Taylor is one of the few singer-songwriters from the 1960s who is still touring regularly and performing at folk clubs, festivals and arts centres. I first saw him in the late 70s at the old Coronation Folk Club in Southport, and most recently at the Bothy when he was last here a year or two ago, and many times in between. I've never been disappointed.
His voice is mellow, his style understated and his repertoire consists almost entirely of his own material. His songs cover the whole range of the human condition, with a few becoming standards, such as Good To See You and Roll On The Day.
He is appearing at the Bothy this Sunday 9 February at 8.00pm, which meets at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS. On-line tickets. It's usually a sell-out when he's on, so get there early.
