HomeS CoffeeHouse @ Sotterley concert featuring Franklin Taggart - 7:30 PM at the Sotterley Plantation Customs Warehouse - Admission is $8 for members and $10 for non-members.
Franklin Taggart has had a strange combination of day jobs over the years. He's worked in construction, worked in a crisis center, taught conflict resolution to inner city school kids, sold church music, owned a consulting business, and written a book on conflict in organizations. For the past several years, he's been teaching beginning guitar to over 40 students each week. "My songs emerge from the stories of the people I've met along the way." In a calm, somewhat husky voice that, according to Mike Joyce of the Washington Post, "occasionally brings John Hartford to mind," Taggart conjures moods such as troubled hearts, thoroughly smitten love, and vivid portraits of first and lasting impressions. His songs are new and familiar at the same time. (www.franklintaggart.com)
