Music in the Gardens series with Hiss Golden Messenger

When: Wed., July 31, 7 p.m. 2013

Since releasing the wonderful Haw, one of the year's most widely acclaimed releases from an American singer-songwriter, Durham's Michael Taylor, better known by the name Hiss Golden Messenger, has been nesting. He and his wife, Abby, had their second child earlier this month, and they spent the first half of the year buying, decorating and modifying the first home they've ever owned. That attempt to reconcile domesticity with one's own younger, wandering ways serves as a sometimes-implied thread throughout Haw, a record that challenges the functions of faith, family and even music itself in the struggle for personal fulfillment. Taylor seems to have found something of a rarified balance, and his even, keening croon serves as a well-adjusted testimonial. Here, he plays only his second full-band show since releasing Haw, backed by a veteran team of standouts such as sideman extraordinaire James Wallace and banjo player Nathan Bowles. —Grayson Currin
