The Old Part of Town

"Brings you in as friends listening to shared stories." - The Alternate Root
"Homespun Harmonizing." - The Modern Folk Music of America
"What is striking is the enthusiasm and joy with which the band plays its music." - Rudolf's Music

Matt Douglass, Sam Nitzberg, Steve Raskin, Marc Wexler, John Seay,  Brian Whaley

The band was formed after Matt and Sam collaborated on an EP in 2012, "Grayest Hits." Looking for a better performance vehicle for their catalog of originals, they recruited Davis Shingleton and Pat Sheridan to pitch in on mandolin, bass and vocals. After a year of performing and stretching out some arrangements, both Davis and Pat left to pursue other musical avenues, but not before recording some tracks for The Old Part of Town's first CD, released in the Fall of 2015. Matt and Sam's longtime musical pals Steve Raskin (drums) and Marc Wexler (mandolin) joined up with John Seay on bass early in 2015, solidifying the new TOPOT lineup, with with fiddle player Brian Whaley joining in 2016.


ISABEL TAYLOR is foremost a singer, whose foundation in 60s and 70s acoustic folk music informs her musical style and songwriting. Based in Chapel Hill, NC, Isabel Taylor started singing at local open mics in 2010, accompanying herself on guitar.

For several years, she has performed at local venues, festivals, and private events in the Triangle (NC) and on the coast, both solo and accompanied by fellow musicians. A native of Buffalo, NY, singing has been a passion of hers since childhood, and songwriting has become a way of personally expressing her views on life and love.

“Though I began by covering songs by artists that I felt were “hidden gems,” I find that writing songs is even more fulfilling. There is nothing like singing an original and experiencing the audience’s connection to it. It inspires me to continue improving my writing skills and overall performance.”

Taylor’s debut CD, Awake Again, produced by award-winning songwriter and guitarist Jon Shain, was released in June 2016.
