We are in for quite a treat when Tom Paxton returns to Golden Link on Saturday, November 17 at 7:30 pm. An icon from the Greenwich Village folk scene, Tom Paxton wrote songs that are still regularly performed at the sing-arounds, such as Ramblin’ Boy, The Last Thing on My Mind, Bottle of Wine, and The Marvelous Toy.
Even though he said he was retiring a few years ago, he has continued to record and now has teamed up with the Grammy-winning singer/songwriters Don Henry and Jon Vezner (The DonJuans) and hit the road again.
In 1990, Don Henry and Jon Vezner received Grammy Awards for co-writing Kathy Mattea’s critically acclaimed hit, Where’ve You Been, which was the first song in country music history to sweep all major “Song of the Year” honors.
For a sample of what you might hear in concert, watch this video of the three of them performing the hard-hitting What If, No Matter:
See the website for upcoming concerts – including and a holiday concert with Joe Newberry and April Verch on December 15. More concerts to be posted on the website soon.
And don’t miss Golden Link’s special concert with Judy Collins on March 9 at Hochstein. Tickets for that concert are available here and through the RPO Box Office.
Keep on singing!
