Have you ever heard Taylor Swift’s songs performed by a first rate string quartet onboard former merchant sailing vessel? That’s right—this summer, you can enjoy some of America’s Sweetheart’s greatest hits with a classical twist aboard The Tall Ship.
Despite winning 12 Grammys, the singer and songwriter is perhaps best known for bearing her soul on her songs and thus, creating a special connection with her fans. Thanks to Candlelight, you’ll listen to some of her deeply personal songs like “Lavender Haze”, “Anti-Hero”, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”, and more, completely reimagine by a talented string quartet. It’ll make for a one-of-a-kind experience, you won’t want to miss out on.
