Morgan Taylor’s “Music of Gustafer Yellowgold”
www.gustaferyellowgold.com
Sunday, Aug. 12, 5 p.m.

Two-time Grammy® Nominee, Morgan Taylor and his band will play perennial favorites and dig deep into the wild and hip back catalogue for this rare, non-video version of his nationally heralded Gustafer Yellowgold show. Tasteful, smart and FUN songs for everyone! Video

The animated character of Gustafer is the brainchild of singer and illustrator Morgan Taylor, whose band accompanies Gustafer on various adventures on CDs and DVDs and in popular multimedia shows that appeal to both kids and grownups. (Gustafer Yellowgold has opened for Wilco.) Recently the New York Times described Taylor, who as an adult rocker has shared bills with the Smithereens and Bob Dylan, as "a cross between Yellow Submarine and Dr. Seuss." –Time Magazine
