One World Theatre says
Tom Paxton has become a voice of his generation, addressing issues of injustice and inhumanity, laying bare the absurdities of modern culture, and celebrating the tender bonds of family, friends, and community. He has been an integral part of the songwriting and folk music community since the early 60s Greenwich Village scene, and continues to be a primary influence on today’s “New Folk” performers.

Paxton has performed thousands of concerts around the world in places including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, France, Italy, Belgium, Ireland, and Canada. That these fans still enjoy his music is a testament to the quality of his recent work, and to the enduring power of modern standards like “The Last Thing On My Mind,” “Ramblin’ Boy,” “Bottle Of Wine,” and “The Marvelous Toy.” Paxton has a catalog of hundreds of songs, which have been recorded by artists likeWillie Nelson, Placido Domingo, and Johnny Cash, that all serve to document his 45-year career. His place in folk music is secured not just by hit records and awards, but by the admiration of three generations of fellow musicians.

“Tom’s songs have a way of sneaking up on you. Youfind yourself humming them, whistling them, andsinging a verse to a friend. Like the songs of WoodyGuthrie, they're becoming part of America.” Pete Seeger.

Performance at 8:00 pm. For ticketing & dinner information, please call 888.616.0522.
