Tom Paxton is an icon of folk music. He has been writing songs, recording albums, and performing since the early 60’s. He writes beautiful songs, with humor and social conscience, and most Americans know at least a few of his many songs.
Tom turns 80 on October 31, 2017.
Please join us in celebrating his birthday by singing his music. We’ll be singing “Bottle of Wine”, “Ramblin’ Boy”, “The Last Thing on My Mind”, “The Marvelous Toy” and many more great songs, and would love to have you singing along, playing along, or contributing your own performances.
Join us November 4 from 7:00 – 9:30 PM to celebrate Tom!
