Award winning violinist Will Taylor and Ryan Murphy create a musical haven where you can truly relax and enjoy yourself in the moment

About this Event

On the August Full Moon, join us to set intentions and indulge in the mesmerizing allure of live acoustic music performed by world-class musicians, surrounded by the warm glow of candlelight.

Its a different kind of concert, that begins and ends in darkness, with music and a poem or two surrounding and soothing you.

Audience members will be given the choice of bringing their own camp chairs, laying on yoga matts on the floor to gaze at the shadows on the ceiling, or lavish on their own pillows.

A poem or two may be read, and Will Taylor will lead a short connection activity for those that want to go deep with the Full Moon arrival.


730 pm Meet and Greet community connection, setup your space, grab some free cacao or tea

8 pm Lights out and concert begins

9 pm Closing and Share time for attendees and movement


  • If you want to lay on the floor, bring yoga matt, pillows and blankets (regular seating also available)
  • Water, or a mug for cacao/tea (free with donation)
  • Love and a friend, or come solo and make new friends connections

Side effects may include: relaxation, balancing your nervous system, releasing what no longer serves, feeling whole and connected to nature, being nurtured and cared for by community.

I live in Austin & Love Will Taylor and his music. Even in a town like Austin where musicians are on every corner, Will Stands out With his unique collaborations and concerts, He truly is "One of a Kind." Thank you Will. Please keep your awesome and unique music coming!!!! YOU would be sorely missed were you to leave!!! -Pam B, Ph.D
Thanks for the unbelievable musical service. Will, you take us kicking and connecting with new people who love music and natural life! Then Tony captured the beauty of classical guitar, which for me was delightful, secret toe wiggling while lying on my mat, housed in dark AC while visually surrounded by elms and willows. The hands on energy touch upon request, was an amazing bonus. Can't get any better. Dr. Patty and Bob

Will, last night's show was magnificent. Now I remember why I felt at home when I came to Austin in 1980. There is something precious here, (Holy, actually) and you are a part of that. Thank you. Shara T.

***Debbie, April 2019

“Unique experience connecting both to nature and to music. A quieter, reflective sidelight on the frenetic Austin tourist experience. Also, a chance to network with some area musicians.”

About The Host:
Will TaylorViolinist, composer and Austin Music Award winner Will Taylor has performed withPearl Jam, Grammy winnerShawn Colvin,P-Diddy,Willie Nelson,Ronny Cox(Deliverance) andmany more.Two time Austin Music Award Winner, and Best of Austin Finalist in 2022Will is the founder of Strings Attached in Austin, Texas.When Pearl Jam came to Austin in October 2009 to record their live Austin City Limits Studio show that would be broadcast nationally, they choose to entrust the strings portion of the show to Will Taylor and Strings Attached.Will Taylor has a musical proposition for you -- a playful, dignified, off-kilter idea that brings honor to Austin's identity as "The Live Music Capital of the World." It's a cool concept. But it's just a bit . . . different.Imagine what might happen, suggests Taylor, if we took Austin's most popular singer-songwriters -- Abra Moore, or Jimmy LaFave, or Patrice Pike, or Ray Wylie Hubbard -- and let them perform, live, in a church? Then imagine if you paired those artists with acoustic "chamber" instruments -- cello, violin, viola, trumpet and hand drums -- and wrote new arrangements, adding dashes of jazz and classical music, that revealed new facets of their most beautiful or familiar songs?Imagine what might happen if you dared to blur all these boundaries between pop music and jazz, between rock music and classical music, between the musical realm and the lyrical realm, between the honky-tonk and the church, and in the spirit of art and fun and experimentation, you reached out for something . . . transcendent?
