Hiss Golden Messenger returns to The Waldo
Event has passed
The Waldo Theatre is excited to welcome back Hiss Golden Messenger’s M.C. Taylor for an intimate solo performance on July 21 at 8 p.m.
Returning to the Waldo after last year’s sold-out show, the North Carolina songwriter incorporates elements from the American songbook into his latest album “Quietly Blowing It” on Merge Records. Throughout the album Taylor brings his keen eye to our “broken American moment”—as he sang on Hiss Golden Messenger’s critically acclaimed, GRAMMY® -nominated ‘Terms of Surrender” in ways that feel devastatingly intimate and human.
“I went looking for peace,” says Taylor, evidenced by his existential ruminations about parenthood, joy, hope, and loneliness. M.C. Taylor’s music is at once familiar, yet impossible to categorize. The steady, churning acoustic guitar and mandolin, the steel guitar tracings, the bobbing and weaving organ, and a trusted cast of talented collaborators conspire to make “Quietly Blowing It” his most audacious and hopeful work yet.
Concessions, including beer and wine will be available at the show. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $30 in advance online and $35 on the day of the show. A limited number of front row seats are available. $1 from every ticket goes to support the Durham, NC Public Schools Foundation whose mission is to foster community support for public schools and invest in our students, educators, and families to ensure success and equity for every student.
