Iconic singer-songwriter James Taylor will spend the majority of the upcoming spring and summer months on a co-headlining tour with Carole King, but he also has some more intimate concert plans set for the future.

The “Carolina on My Mind” songman has announced a special four-part “Perspectives” concert series at New York City’s famed Carnegie Hall, but fans will have to wait another year to experience it. Combining live music, guest appearances and discussions of his career, Taylor will take the stage on April 12, April 20, May 6 and May 9, 2011.

Each night at the Carnegie will have a different overarching theme, with special guests expected to step in throughout. The first evening will be a celebratory gala for the Carnegie’s 120th anniversary, followed a week later by an exploration of Taylor’s musical influences “from bluegrass and blues to Celtic music and church hymns,” according to the official program.

The first event in May will focus on Taylor’s instrument of choice, the guitar, with some of the musician’s fellow guitarists joining him onstage for a discussion and performances. The four-part series will end appropriately as Taylor is joined by his backing band for a set that spans his catalogue and highlights his greatest hits.
