When I’m asked to cite writers who have influenced me, I invariably name singer/songwriters. Eric Taylor is one of those. His songs are the finest sort of roughneck literature. Also, I once drove across the state through a 100-year flood to see an Eric Taylor show and when I got to the venue I realized I had forgotten my money, my credit cards, and my ID. Some guy at the bar offered to pay my way in.
It was Eric Taylor.
He’s going to be touring up here in our parts beginning this week: Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota. Details here.
