The Waldo Theatre

Hiss Golden Messenger returns July 19

The Waldo Theatre, at 916 Main St., Waldoboro, is excited to announce tickets are now on sale for an intimate solo performance with Hiss Golden Messenger on July 19 at 7:30 p.m.

The Durham, North Carolina  songwriter M.C. Taylor’s music is at once familiar, yet impossible to categorize. Elements from the American songbook—the steady, churning acoustic guitar and mandolin, the gospel emotion, the steel guitar tracings, the bobbing and weaving organ and electric piano—provide the bedrock of Taylor’s existential ruminations about parenthood, joy, hope, and loneliness.

“I went looking for peace,” Taylor says about his latest album, “Quietly Blowing It,” on Merge Records. Throughout the album Taylor brings his keen eye to our “broken American moment”—as he first sang on Hiss Golden Messenger’s critically acclaimed, GRAMMY® -nominated “Terms of Surrender”—in ways that feel devastatingly intimate and human. Surrounding himself with a trusted cast of collaborators that Includes Buddy Miller, songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov, songwriter and Tony award–winning playwright Anaïs Mitchell, multi-instrumentalist Josh Kaufman, Dawes’ brothers Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith, and his oldest musical confidant Scott Hirsch, Taylor has made his most audacious and hopeful work yet with “Quietly Blowing It.”

Concessions, including beer and wine, will be available at the show. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 in advance online and $35 on the day of the show. A limited number of front row seats are available. $1 from every ticket goes to support the Durham Public Schools Foundation whose mission is to foster community support for public schools and invest in our students, educators, and families to ensure success and equity for every student.
