Together At Last: Tom Paxton + Janis Ian
Two of America’s greatest songwriters visit the UK together. Each with ties to the classic Greenwich Village folk scene, Tom Paxton and Janis Ian are nearly a generation apart yet share a slew of folk influences as well as an affinity for fearlessly tackling controversial issues.
Performing together on stage in the UK for the very first time, Together At Last will present Tom Paxton and Janis Ian singing all their best known songs plus a whole host more.
As Tom puts it, 'It's going to be very different from what people might expect. It's not your generic split bill. We take the stage together and we stay onstage together most of the time, singing on one another's songs'.
This event takes place at Barbican Centre, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
American songwriting legend whose music has come to define the American folk sound. He was honoured in 2005 by the BBC Folk Awards, with a Lifetime Achievement in Songwriting. 'Tom's songs have a way of sneaking up on you. You find yourself humming them, whistling them, and singing a verse to a friend. Like the songs of Woodie Guthrie, they're becoming part of America.' (Pete Seeger).
