Tom Paxton is one of the world’s best-known and loved singer/songwriters. In 2009, he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy (The Grammy(R) Awards). His newest CD, Comedians & Angels, was also nominated for a Grammy(R). Paxton’s influence on folk music has been inestimable: his songs have been recorded by Pete Seeger; Peter, Paul, and Mary; Joan Baez; Arlo Guthrie; and Johnny Cash. His best-known tunes include “The Last Thing on My Mind,” “Ramblin’ Boy,” “Bottle of Wine,” and “Goin’ to the Zoo.” He has been richly honored: he received the ASCAP Lifetime Achievement Award as well as four Grammy nominations, and the Martin Guitar Company even named a guitar after him. He is a true musical treasure.
