Folk | Eric Taylor 

Eric Taylor was born and raised in Georgia, but the bulk of his musical education took place in Texas. While working at a club in Houston in the 70s, Taylor was exposed to the soulful blues of artists like Lightnin' Hopkins and Mississippi Fred McDowell. His own unique guitar style — combining elements of Americana and country — and a penchant for storytelling have made him one of the most important, and underappreciated folk artists of his generation. Southern blues singer-songwriter BeJae Fleming also performs.

Eric Taylor performs Saturday, July 20, 7 p.m. at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way, $20-$22, abilenebarandlounge.com.
