Celebrated recording artist Livingston Taylor will perform a Thanksgiving Weekend concert Friday, Nov. 25, at 7:30 p.m. at the downtown Camden Opera House. Doors will open 7 p.m.

Music lovers are invited to bring the whole family or just make a date for romance to enjoy a special night of dreamy and classic folk music from an all-time favorites. From top-40 hits “I Will Be in Love with You” and “I’ll Come Running” to “I Can Dream of You” and “Boatman,” Livingston’s creative output has continued unabated. His musical knowledge has inspired a varied repertoire, and he is equally at home with a range of musical genres — folk, pop, gospel, jazz — from upbeat storytelling to touching ballads.

Taylor picked up his first guitar at age 13, beginning an almost 50-year career that has encompassed performance, songwriting and teaching. Born in Boston and raised in North Carolina, Livingston is the fourth child in a very musical family that includes Alex, James, Kate and Hugh. Livingston recorded his first record at age 18 and has continued to create well crafted, introspective and original songs that have earned him listeners worldwide.

Livingston also is the author of the book "Stage Performance," which draws from more than two decades of teaching his popular Stage Performance class at Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Opening will be Chelsea Berry, a singer/songwriter with incredible edge, power and finesse. According to Chris Smither, “her future is so bright you’re gonna have to wear shades.”

Tickets are $28 in advance and will be $32 at the door the night of show. For advance tickets, call 536-5850; visit camdenoperahouse.com; or stop by the Camden Town Office weekdays between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
