“A huge, heartfelt thank you, from all of us, to the great James Taylor, for taking time out to support the Sunflower Guitar for Ukraine project by joining a growing list of superstars (Emmylou Harris, Brad Paisley, Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell, Graham Nash, Peter Frampton, Gillian Welch, Vince Gill, T-Bone Burnett, Jason Isbell, Bruce Cockburn, Gordon Lightfoot, Julian Lage and many more) in honouring the people of Ukraine in their ongoing struggle. You can read about how this amazing instrument has become both a symbol of hope and solidarity and a means to raise vital humanitarian aid for displaced Ukrainian families in time of war – and how to donate – at www.sunflowerguitar.com It’s hard to imagine how such a special night as 8/29/22 at Fenway Park could get any better but by adding his commitment to the Sunflower Guitar project, James pulled it off. Well…of course he did. Thank you, JT”
