UPDATE: Congrats to Rock Candy reader Diane Hudson, who won our drawing.
Your good friends here at the Times know how much you all love the music concerts, and also how much you all love winning free tickets to the music concerts.
So how would you like to win a pair of tickets to see Ben Taylor at Juanita's on May 9? Taylor has released several albums of stylistically diverse contemporary folk over the years, most recently 2012's "Listening." If you're into the breezy, laid-back singer/songwriter vibe of such artists as Josh Rouse or maybe Jason Mraz, you will likely find much to dig in Taylor's tunes. Also, Taylor is a student of the martial arts. And his parents are famous musicians, something he discusses right here.
Check out this video of him and a buddy cold porchin' it, playing guitars and singing his song "Nothing I Can Do."
If you would like to be entered in Rock Candy's drawing, just send an email to robert bell at arktimes dot com with "BEN TAYLOR" in the subject line (in all caps like that, if you please) by noon o'clock on May 8 and you'll be entered. We'll draw the winning name that afternoon. You can also get tickets here, if you want to play it safe or if you just don't like drawings or something.
