Livingston Taylor Performs for Veterans at NECHV

Veterans at NECHV were treated to a special evening on December 14 when Livingston Taylor visited to perform a short set. Veterans Memorial Hall, beautifully decorated for the holidays, provided an intimate and relaxing venue for Veterans to take in the performance.

Mr. Taylor mixed holiday songs with fan favorites, like Somewhere Over the Rainbow and Carolina in My Mind, a classic written by his brother, James. Following the concert, Veterans had the opportunity to meet and speak with Mr. Taylor, and at the end of the evening, everyone who attended left with a smile on their faces. Thank you, Mr. Taylor, for spreading the holiday spirit at NECHV!
