Twin Rivertown Projects, Inc. proudly hosts Livingston and Kate Taylor on the annual Lambertville-New Hope Winter Festival Concert stage on Friday, Jan. 29, at 8 p.m.

Livingston and Kate delighted fans at the 2005 Winter Festival Concert during a sold-out show, and are back again at the recently-renovated Stephen J. Buck Memorial Theater in New Hope.

Siblings of music icon James Taylor, both Livingston and Kate have enjoyed success as touring performers and recording artists. Composer of top 40s hits “I Will Be in Love With You” and “First Time Love,” Livingston has released over 18 albums including “Livingston Taylor,” “Liv,” “Over the Rainbow,” and “City Lights” with James Taylor. He has toured with acts ranging from Linda Ronstadt to Jethro Tull, and maintains an active national touring schedule.

Livingston says he’s excited to be back playing again in our neck of the woods. “My favorite town—New Hope—with my favorite sister Kate—Dang!—this is gonna be fun!”

Kate Taylor grew up in one of the most musical families in America, with her three other brothers Alex, Hugh, James, and of course, Livingston. She formed her first band at age 15, and had her first record deal with Atlantic Records four years later. She scored a Top 50 hit in 1978 with”It’s in His Kiss,” performed as a duet with James. Kate has released four other albums since then with her blend of country, rhythm and blues, rockabilly, gospel, Appalachian folk, blues, rock ‘n’ roll, and Motown.

“I had a great time singing with brother Liv at our last Winter Festival show, and I am grateful for the opportunity to come see old friends, meet new ones, and sing some more songs again!” said Kate.

It’s organized and run by “hard-working and fun-loving business owners, residents, and other good-spirited people from this area,” according to their release. The non-profit Twin Rivertown Projects, Inc. runs the community fundraiser, and has selected the New Hope, Lambertville, and Solebury parks and tecreation departments, and local food banks, including Fisherman’s Mark, as the primary recipients of event proceeds, they say. Lambertville-New Hope Winter Festival benefits other community organizations, including local schools, fire, police and rescue organizations. Non-perishable food collection boxes are present at select Winter Festival events, including the concert.

It all takes place on Friday, Jan. 29, at 8 p.m. at the Stephen J. Buck Memorial Theater, 182 W. Bridge St. in New Hope. Tickets are $40 in advance, and $45 at door. The VIP package available for $95 includes preferred seating, and a “meet the artists” reception from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Taste of the World in Logan Square (includes light food and beverages, and transportation).
