ESO James Taylor & Carole King“You’ve Got a Friend," the songs of Carole King and James Taylor featuring Kirsti Manna and Jonathan Birchfield.
 
In 2010 Carole King and James Taylor, two of the most celebrated singer-songwriters to ever hit the music scene, held their long awaited Live at the Troubadour reunion. It came as no surprise to anyone that Kirsti Manna and Jonathan Birchfield were so inspired by that concert that it compelled them to create a show based on this timeless music. “There’s no one else I would want to perform this catalog with,” says Birchfield. Manna laughs and says, “I always told him we should work on this music together. These songs are a perfect fit for us and it feels so natural. I love it!”

Kirsti and Jonathan have years of touring, performing and writing between them. They have have shared the stage with such artists as Brooks and Dunn, Ray Charles, Jimmy Buffett, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill and have appeared on the Grand Ole Opry. And now they are sharing the stage not only with each other but with the songs of their musical mentors. Songs including
