The Janis Ian/Livingston Taylor concert originally scheduled for Wednesday, May 25 at 8 p.m. and rescheduled to Thursday, December 1, 2022 at 8 p.m. has been cancelled. Refunds will be issued automatically to all ticket buyers.

A note from Janis Ian:

“It is with unfathomable sadness that I announce the cancellation of all upcoming tour dates.

Unfortunately, the laryngitis that forced the postponement of some spring dates has turned out to be more complicated than a simple, treatable laryngitis. There is vocal fold scarring; the doctors can only speculate as to why, but treatments are very limited. And it would be many months before we’d know the outcome of any treatment.

It is most unlikely that I’ll ever sound like myself again. I consider myself lucky that this is not life-threatening, though the loss in my own small world is staggering. Refunds will be issued by the venues and thank you all for your support and love.”

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

Known for her passionate songwriting, Janis Ian brings her trademark folk style to the stage, combining insightful lyrics and tender vocals with the powerful social commentary that has pervaded her music since her debut in the 1960s. Ian first gained widespread acclaim at the age of 15 with the controversial hit “Society’s Child,” her first Grammy-nominated effort.  Since then, Ian has written songs for artists as diverse as John Mellencamp, Bette Midler, Etta James and Kathy Mattea and has consistently produced hits including “At Seventeen,” “Jesse” and “Fly Too High.”  Throughout her career, Ian has received 10 Grammy nominations, recorded over 30 albums, contributed to numerous movie and television soundtracks and has recorded and sung commercial jingles for companies such as McDonald’s, AT&T and Budweiser.

Livingston Taylor has been a force on the folk music scene with a 50-year career including performance, songwriting and teaching. He has toured and collaborated with major artists such as Linda Ronstadt, Jimmy Buffett, Fleetwood Mac, Jethro Tull and brother James Taylor. Over the years, he has recorded 14 albums, and three retrospectives. He is a natural performer, peppering his shows with personal stories, anecdotes and an ineffable warmth that connects him to his fans. Taylor currently maintains a performing schedule of more than 100 shows per year, which include club, theater, college and full symphony repertoire.
