TOM PAXTON, JON VEZNER & DON HENRY CONCERT
Tom Paxtons songs are so powerful and lyrical, written from the heart and the conscience, and they reach their mark, our most inner being. He writes stirring songs of social protest and gentle songs of love, each woven together with his personal gift for language. His melodies haunt, his lyrics reverberate. I have sung Toms songs for three decades and will go on doing so in the new century, for they are beautiful and timeless, and meant for every age. (Judy Collins)

Tom Paxton embodies the spirit of folk music in the most beautiful sense. Not just in his song crafting, his work ethic, his politics and his dedication to peoples music, but also in his kind and generous heart. When I first started playing folk festivals, I was all of eighteen, shaved headed and politically outspoken. Many people in the folk community at that time seemed defensive and threatened by me, but I remember Tom was a notable exception. He was nothing but warm, welcoming and supportive to me from the git go. Hes the coolest. (Ani DiFranco)

Every folk singer I know has either sung a Tom Paxton song, is singing a Tom Paxton song or will soon sing a Tom Paxton song. Now either all the folk singers are wrong, or Tom Paxton is one hell of a songwriter. (Holly Near)Grammy award-winning songwriter, Nashville based,

Jon Vezner is a tunesmith of rare sensitivity and dry wit. His catalogue of recorded songs, topped by the poignant Whereve You Been, reflects his straight-to-the heart sensibility and emotional awareness. Vezner weaves the particulars of his own feelings with the lives of people he has known into universal themes that deeply touch listeners emotions.

Vezner was honored with a Grammy for Best Country Song and the Nashville Songwriters Association Song of the Year in 1990, for Where've You Been, the true story of Vezners grandparents, co-written with Don Henry, and recorded by Kathy Mattea. Whereve You Been was also honored as Song of the Year by the Country Music Association (CMA) and the Academy of Country Music (ACM).

Grammy Award winner Don Henry's songs have been recorded by legends like:
Ray Charles, Patti Page and Conway Twitty
By country crooners like:
Gene Watson, John Conlee and B.J. Thomas
By young hit makers of today like:
Blake Shelton, Lonestar and Miranda Lambert .
.....and the list goes on.

And he's shared the stage with performers as diverse as
Joey Ramone to Keith Urban.

The wit and wisdom of Don's songs are widely renowned whether it's campfire favorites, the hilarious "B.F.D." and biker lullaby "Harley", to the wonderfully poignant tribute to Martin Luther King "Beautiful Fool", and of course his Grammy Award winning country classic "Where've You Been".
