James Taylor will return to Australia for the first time in seven years for a tour of indoor and outdoor venues, including several wineries.

The singer-songwriter has been in the business for nearly half a century and has written some of the most recognisable folk songs including Fire and Rain, Sweet Baby James, Carolina in My Mind and You've Got a Friend.

In 2015, the prolific musician released the album Before This World, which became his first No.1 on the Billboard charts.

His last tour Down Under included his sometimes songwriting partner, Carole King for the Troubadour Reunion tour in 2010.

For his next Australian tour, Taylor will be joined on some concerts by Aussies Bernard Fanning and Kasey Chambers.
