Taylor announced on his Web site that he’ll play a second show on Saturday at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington. The first show, scheduled for Friday, sold out in 90 minutes Tuesday and raised $300,000 – $150,000 in ticket sales, which was then matched by Taylor and his wife, Kim.

Both shows will benefit Partners in Health, a Boston-based group that brings modern medical care to poor nations and has been working in Haiti for more than 20 years.

The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, who lives in nearby Lenox, says on his Web site that a second concert “is the least I can do.”
