The Waldo Theatre is excited to announce tickets are now on
sale for an intimate solo performance with Hiss Golden Messenger on July 19 at 7:30

Returning back to The Waldo, Durham, North Carolina, songwriter M.C. Taylor’s music
is at once familiar, yet impossible to categorize. Elements from the American
songbook—the steady, churning acoustic guitar and mandolin, the gospel emotion, the
steel guitar tracings, the bobbing and weaving organ and electric piano—provide the
bedrock for Taylor’s existential ruminations about parenthood, joy, hope, and loneliness.

“I went looking for peace,” he says about his latest album “Quietly Blowing It,” on Merge
Records. Throughout the album Taylor brings his keen eye to our “broken American
moment”—as he first sang on Hiss Golden Messenger’s critically acclaimed,
GRAMMY® -nominated ‘Terms of Surrender’—in ways that feel devastatingly intimate
and human.

Surrounding himself with a trusted cast of collaborators that Includes Buddy
Miller, songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov, songwriter and Tony award–winning playwright
Anaïs Mitchell, multi-instrumentalist Josh Kaufman, Dawes’ brothers Taylor and Griffin
Goldsmith, and his oldest musical confidant Scott Hirsch, Taylor has made his most
audacious and hopeful work yet with “Quietly Blowing It.”

Concessions, including beer and wine will be available at the show. Doors open at
6:30pm. 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 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.
