Tour name: Tom Paxton & Janis Ian - Together At Last
(With Robin Bullock)
Two of America’s greatest folk-songwriters visit Liverpool Philharmonic together in March, 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. Paxton emerged in the days of hootenannies and wrote his share of ‘ protest songs’. He also wrote songs about love and humor too. Many became oft-covered standards, including Bottle of Wine, Ramblin' Boy and The Last Thing on My Mind.
At 15, Ian had a major pop hit with Society's Child, a taboo-busting meditation on interracial romance. Her biggest hit, the reflective At Seventeen, won her a Grammy. Performing together in the UK for the very first time, Paxton and Ian sing all their best known songs plus a whole host more. They’ll take the stage together, stay onstage together most of the time, and sing on one another's songs.
Tom Paxton and Janis Ian will be accompanied by internationally renowned multi-instrumentalist Robin Bullock.
Price: £26.50, £32.50
