Tom Paxton
Sat, Apr 24, 7:30 - 10:00 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute

A versatile folk singer capable of earnest, scathing and tender social comment, Tom Paxton emerged in the 1960s as an important voice in topical folk music. The Boston Globe named him "one of the great songwriters of the century" for his enduring tunes like "Ramblin’ Boy", "Last Thing on My Mind" and "I Can't Help But Wonder Where I'm Bound" that have been recorded by hundreds of artists, including Willie Nelson, Pete Seeger and Placido Domingo. Paxton's easy-going, humorous and gentle manner appeals to audiences of all ages. Of his 29 albums, 5 are for kids.

"Tom Paxton embodies the spirit of folk music in the most beautiful sense." -- Ani DiFranco

"Thirty years ago Tom Paxton taught a generation of traditional folksinger that it was noble to write your own songs, and, like a good guitar, he just gets better with age." -- Guy Clark

"After more than 30 albums and thousands of performances, he’s still adding to his catalog of songs, one of the few folk performers who came of age in the 1960s who seamlessly blends music that is both classic and contemporary." -- Dirty Linen

"Tom Paxton has proven to be one of the most talented and certainly the funniest of the topical folksinger/songwriters who emerged in the '60s.” --

"Tom Paxton is one of the great songwriters of this century.” -- The Boston Globe
