Author Tom PaxtonTom Paxton is one of the world's best-known and loved singer/songwriters. In 2009 at the Grammy® Awards, he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy. Paxton's influence on folk music has been inestimable: his songs have been recorded by several major artists including 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.” Many address social concerns such as political injustice, inequality, and the ecology, but others celebrate the bonds of family and friendship, and the joys of childhood. He has been richly honored with the ASCAP Lifetime Achievement Award, four Grammy nominations, and the Martin Guitar Company has even named a guitar after him. He is a true musical treasure.
