Mr. Taylor has been performing for more than forty years. His musical genre includes folk, pop, jazz, and gospel. His performance style embraces upbeat storytelling and touching ballads. He intersperses his songs with personal stories, anecdotes and appealing warmth. Born in Boston, Livingston grew up in North Carolina. His brothers, James and Alex and his sister, Kate, also became musicians. Alex died in 1993. His younger brother, Hugh, runs an inn on Martha’s Vineyard.

Mr. Taylor started writing songs when he was 16 and started recording at the age of 18. He continues to produce original songs that are introspective and well crafted. Livingston’s latest album, Blue Sky, was released in the spring of 2014. It is the third in a series of albums over the last decade that includes There You Are Again (2005) and Last Alaska Moon (2009).

The music program at Trinity dates back to 1885 with the founding of the Choir of Men and Boys, one of the oldest existing choirs of its type in the United States. (They have performed with cathedral choirs all over the British Isles). The Choir of Men and Girls, founded in 2003, has also attained critical acclaim. Each choir has performed at Woolsey Hall and many other venues in central Connecticut, at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC, and have joined forces with cathedral choirs in England on regular tours. Members of the two choirs are auditioned from all over central Connecticut. Walden Moore is the director of the Trinity choirs. Moore, Director of Music since 1984, is a nationally-known figure in sacred music, conducting choral and church music workshops across the nation. Many former choir members have made music their vocation, thanks to the exemplary leadership of Walden Moore.

The next concert in the Music for Music Series at Trinity on the Green will be Tom Chapin, on Sunday, September 27 at 7 pm.
