VIRTUAL The History of James Taylor & Carly Simon

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Event Details

In the early 1970’s the singer/songwriter ruled the radio. Carole King, Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens…but the era’s ultimate power couple were husband and wife James Taylor and Carly Simon. Using performance and interview clips we’ll trace the arc of their careers from “Fire and Rain” and “You’re So Vain” to “Shower the People” and “Coming Around Again.” The marriage didn’t last, but the hits sure have! In honor of its 50th anniversary, special attention will be given to Taylor's #1 hit “You’ve Got a Friend.” Presented by Gary Wenstrup, adjunct professor at the College of DuPage.
