Focus Contemporary Art and the Scottsville Center for Arts and Nature (SCAN) are pleased to announce an evening with local musician Butch Taylor on June 29th at 6p.m. in the Victory Hall Theater.
Introducing Scottsville’s hidden gem, the legendary keyboardist and gifted producer, Butch Taylor! Taylor is perhaps most widely known for his regular appearances as a keyboardist with the Dave Matthews Band. Taylor continues to play with other popular groups such as Robert Jospé Express, John D'earth, and Carbon Leaf. Additionally, Taylor is a talented composer, writer, and is the chief engineer and producer at Ravensworth Studios. He has written musical scores for advertisements of many recognizable businesses including Sprint, Holiday Inn, and Miller Lite. Some of these scores have been aired worldwide, most notably during a Super Bowl. Moreover, Taylor composed, performed, and produced an original song for the musical comedy-drama film “The Fighting Temptations.”
Taylor will be discussing his behind the scene process of creating music. He will be accompanied by the talented local musician Stuart Gunter. Gunter is a nationally performing drummer who plays regularly with many notable bands including Chamomile & Whiskey and the Wrinkle Neck Mules. In addition to being a musician, Gunter is a gifted writer who frequently contributes to the Huffington Post.
The presentation will be held on Wednesday, June 29th at 6p.m. in the Victory Hall Theater (401 Valley Street, Scottsville, VA). Admission is free.
