Sweet Baby James pays tribute to James Taylor at the Ridgefield Playhouse
James Taylor is one of the great singers and songwriters of his era, so it’s no surprise that there are tribute acts out there. But what’s surprising is the genuine emotion that Sweet Baby James – America’s #1 James Taylor Tribute Artist – can channel into each of these great songs, from “Fire And Rain” to “You’ve Got A Friend” to “Carolina On My Mind.”
Hear these classics and more when Sweet Baby James hits the Ridgefield Playhouse on Saturday, May 7, 2020, at 8 p.m., as part of the Pepsi Rock Driven by North American Motor Car series and the 068 Magazine Singer Songwriter series. As a special charitable initiative at this show, additional donations can be made at checkout to go directly to Ridgefield Responds – Ukraine. These funds will be used to help refugees and other victims of the crisis in Ukraine, and to provide goods such as water, food, medicine and clothing to those in need. All donations are tax deductible.
James Taylor is the archetypal singer-songwriter, with introspective songs over sparse yet powerful melodies that possess enormous depth and power. It’s no wonder these songs stand the test of time, and no wonder there’s a legion of talented artists who enjoy performing them in their own unique style. With Sweet Baby James, it’s a very literal rendition, dedicated to faithful reproductions of all of James Taylor’s classic songs. Close your eyes and you might think James Taylor is on stage, at the height of his powers…it’s more like Sweet Baby James in the intimate setting of The Ridgefield Playhouse.
