HOW SWEET IT IS: James Taylor & His All-Star Band to hit Bimbadgen in April

Legendary singer-songwriter and guitar virtuoso, James Taylor will hit the stage at Bimbadgen in the Hunter Valley this April for a day on the green.

Special guests Josh Pyke and Ella Hooper will join the six-time Grammy winner when the much-loved event series returns to the Hunter for an evening steeped in musical history and wrapped in Taylor’s warm baritone voice and iconic guitar melodies.

And you better warm up your pipes, because there are bound to be a stack of hug-inducing sing-a-long moments to songs like Fire and Rain, Sweet Baby James, Carolina In My Mind and of course the soul-stirring anthem You’ve Got A Friend.

The nostalgic journey through the ages will also be peppered with songs from Taylor’s latest offering, the 2021 long-player American Standard, which earned him the 2021 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.

Early arrivals will get the chance to catch two of our very own national treasures with Josh Pyke and Ella Hooper providing the perfect entree for the night. No strangers to the festival stage, both Pyke and Hooper have been mainstays of the Australian musical landscape for over two decades. With Pyke’s deeply personal lyrics and infectious melodies, and Hooper’s show-stopping vocals and stage processes these are two supports you won’t want to miss.

James Taylor & His All-Star Band will hit Bimbadgen in the Hunter Valley for a day on the green on Saturday 27 April, 2024. For tickets and information visit adayonthegreen.com.au/jamestaylor.
