Lisa Bisbee-Lentz and I had the honor of interviewing the Legendary Livingston Taylor about his life, passions, and upcoming concert in New Bern, NC on April 12, 2018.

If you didn’t know, Isaac Taylor is Livingston’s great, great, great grandfather and we did the interview from inside the Isaac Taylor House, which Lisa and her husband, Mike Lentz own.

Livingston wears many hats. He’s a songwriter, singer, storyteller, professor, and during the interview, we found out that he’s a pilot as he was doing maintenance of his Cessna when we called.

During the interview, Livingston told us that he’s been to New Bern several times over the years and he’s very excited to be coming back.

We’re looking forward to seeing Livingston perform on April 12th at 7 p.m. at the New Bern Riverfront Convention!

Special thank you goes out to The New Bern Historical Society as they’ve worked very hard preparing for their annual fundraising concert which will also feature Lewis n Clark!

Limited tickets are available at all levels, at the New Bern Historical Society office at 511 Broad St., by phone at 252-638-8558 or online at General tickets are $38 plus tax and $58 plus tax for preferred seating. Students with ID up to age 26 are $28 plus tax. VIP seating and sponsorships are available that include seating in the front, center section and a champagne reception at the Isaac Taylor House.
