Spend a romantic evening at The Barnhill Center with the people and music you love.
This special event starts with a Sweet Valentine Treat, and champagne or coffee, in Morriss Hall with music to set an amorous mood.
Then you’ll move into Hasskarl Auditorium for a cozy concert by Bill Griese, known as “Sweet Baby James.” Settle into the comforting songs that were made popular by six-time Grammy winner, James Taylor.
The Nashville-based Sweet Baby James is America’s #1 tribute to James Taylor. The artist has more Facebook followers than all other JT tribute acts combined. He is also #1 on Instagram and YouTube.
Griese is not a James Taylor impersonator. He just happens to have a singing voice that closely resembles Taylor’s voice. His amazing guitar performance is also a close match to Taylor’s original recordings.
Using only his guitar and his spot-on vocals, Griese delivers the timeless music in a natural, authentic way. His spellbound audiences often sing along, and they are invited to request their favorite songs. Amazingly, Griese takes the impromptu requests and belts-out any James Taylor song, perfectly recalling the lyrics to all.
It’s a show you must hear to believe. Expect the ultimate James Taylor experience with favorites like "Fire & Rain," "You've Got a Friend," "Shower the People," "How Sweet It Is," "Steamroller," “Handy Man” and many more.
Whether you're a diehard fan or a casual listener, this show is not to be missed!
