“Tom Paxton’s songs are so powerful and lyrical, written from the heart and the conscience, and they reach their mark, our most inner being … they are beautiful and timeless, and meant for every age.” – Judy Collins
Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award-winner and folk icon Tom Paxton teams up with the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter duo The DonJuans – Don Henry & Jon Vezner. After 56 years of performing around the world and writing and recording innumerable songs and recordings, Tom Paxton has found yet another outlet for his creativity. He has joined his friends and songwriting colleagues in a writing and performing experience calculated to keep them too busy to get into trouble.
Paxton has performed thousands of concerts in venues ranging from coffeehouses in Greenwich Village to Albert Hall in London and Carnegie Hall in New York. He has done more than 50 concert tours in England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland and has recorded more than 50 albums of his own songs. Hundreds of other artists have recorded his songs, including Bob Dylan; Johnny Cash; Willie Nelson; Dolly Parton; Judy Collins; John Denver; Joan Baez; and Peter, Paul and Mary.
In the nearly 25 years since “Where’ve You Been” -- their song which was recorded by Kathy Mattea and was the first song in country music history to sweep all major “song of the year” honors -- Don Henry & Jon Vezner have performed in venues from New York’s Bottom Line to Nashville’s Bluebird Café. They have shared stages with artists as diverse as Joey Ramone, John Hartford, Michael Johnson, and David Crosby and their songs have been recorded by a multitude of artists including Janis Ian, Ray Charles, John Mellencamp, and Miranda Lambert, to name a few. Working as a duo, the DonJuans offer an impressive array of songs, experience, and gifted musicianship.

Golden Link Folk Singing Society is fortunate to hold our festival at this terrific facility with a long history of hosting differently-abled youngsters for a residential summer camp experience. Therefore, it is wheelchair accessible — from paved paths and no steps, to modern bathroom facilities.
If rough-camping isn't your style, but you'd like to stay on the grounds to partake of all the festival has to offer, you might want to consider taking advantage of the bunkhouse style cabins available on the grounds for a modest fee.
Cabins have beds on either side, separated by a lounge, and a bathroom accessible to either side. Users will be assigned to a cabin, but may select their bed, first come, first served. GLFSS is not responsible for your personal belongings and cabins will not be locked at anytime. Bring sleeping bags, blankets, pillows, linens, etc. as you would for camping. All bathrooms provide hot water, hand soap and showers. Cabins are heated as needed.
These are not luxury accommodations, and there is a certain absence of privacy as everything is shared space, except for toilets of course. We will establish one cabin for women, one for men and one for families. Additional cabins may be utilized based on interest and availability.
Cabins are ideal for those wishing to stay at the festival site all weekend but prefer an indoor sleeping arrangement as opposed to dealing with all that’s needed to set up a camping area in the open field.
- The Rotary Sunshine Campus is completely wheelchair accessible. Paved paths, no steps, and modern bathroom facilities make this facility friendly to the differently abled.
- Pets, other than service animals, are prohibited.
- Alcoholic beverages are prohibited.
- Open fires are prohibited.
Space is available for vendors to set up a booth on the grounds near the main concert hall. Potential vendors can contact our Festival Vendor Coordinator, Jantina Cornelison by Clicking Here.
Camp grounds are available for $10 per site for tent camping or RVs. This is rough camping only, with no hookups for RVs. Hot showers and bathrooms are available to campers in the building next to the pool. Those bringing RVs are required to move their tow vehicles to the parking lot after setting up.
Heated bunkhouse-style cabin accommodations with attached bath & showers are available for a small fee. See the Tickets and Fees page for prices. Cabins will be gender-specific for Men, Women, Families/Co-ed. Detailed information on the cabins can be found here: Detailed Cabin Information
