Janis Ian & Tom Paxton
Fri, Mar 20 - 7:30pm
After 50 years in folk music, these songwriting legends have gone far beyond proving their artistic and musical talents: through their dedicated lives, they've demonstrated a deep lifelong passion to their craft and social ideals. Reviewers have called Janis' shows "overwhelming to the spirit and soul," while Tom's haunting melodies and profound lyrics have become part of American heritage. Both artists are multiple-time Grammy nominees, with so many singers recording and covering their music that they are considered "musicians' musicians." As loud as their achievements speak for them, however, the greatness of each is most clearly seen in the impact they have had on a culture over three generations.
