James Taylor joins Tanglewood lineup for 4th of July performances

The singer returns to Tanglewood for the 24th time.

Local folkateer James Taylor is wrapping up a fine 2015, a year that brought him a new album called Before This World, a song honoring Fenway Park, and two Grammy nominations. Looking ahead to 2016, Taylor has now announced that he will return to Tanglewood for two nights, July 3 and 4, during the upcoming season.

Taylor first performed at Tanglewood in 1974 and has returned to the Western Massachusetts festival a total of 24 times. As is tradition for Taylor, proceeds from these shows will be donated back to Tanglewood. The singer will be joined by his All-Star Band to perform some of his most classic songs, as well as selections from Before This World. Tickets start at $27 and are available starting January 17 through Tanglewood’s website.


Tanglewood opens on June 25, 2016. Other special guests during the 2016 season will include fellow Grammy nominee and New England native Seth MacFarlane.
