About the artists:

Lifetime Grammy Award winner Tom Paxton, who turns 80 a few days before his shows here, is one of the most influential and lauded songwriters of our time. Some of his songs including “The Last Thing on My Mind” and “Bottle of Wine” are all-time classics.  “Whose Garden Was This?,” written, sung, and recorded by Tom for the First Earth Day became an Earth Day anthem sung by many artists, most notably John Denver.

Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Judy Collins, Joan Baez, and Peter, Paul and Mary and hundreds of other artists have recorded his songs.  Tom himself has more than fifty albums to his credit!

GRAMMY-winning songwriters Jon Vezner and Don Henry have had songs done by Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Faith Hill, Steve Wariner, the Wiggins, Clay Walker, Diamond Rio, BJ Thomas, Janis Ian, John Mellencamp, Nanci Griffith, and Judy Collins. Lonestar, Rosie Flores, the Thompson Brothers Band, Bryan White, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, and many more.
