  • Thomas Richard "Tom" Paxton (born October 31, 1937) is an American folk singer and singer-songwriter who has had a music career spanning more than fifty years. In 2009, Paxton received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.Paxton's songs have demonstrated enduring appeal, including modern standards such as "The Last Thing on My Mind", "Bottle of Wine", "Whose Garden Was This", "The Marvelous Toy", and "Ramblin' Boy". Paxton's songs have been recorded by Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, The Weavers, Judy Collins, Sandy Denny, Joan Baez, Doc Watson, Harry Belafonte, Peter, Paul and Mary, Marianne Faithfull, The Kingston Trio, The Chad Mitchell Trio, John Denver, Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner, Willie Nelson, Flatt & Scruggs, The Move, The Fireballs, and many others (see covers). He has performed thousands of concerts around the world in such places as Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, Scandinavia, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Holland, England, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, and all over the United States; and his songs have been translated into various languages. Paxton enjoys a strong relationship with fans throughout the world.Paxton's songs can be emotionally affective and cover a wide range of topics, from the serious and profound to the lighthearted and comical. "What Did You Learn in School Today?" mocks the way children are often taught lies. "Jimmy Newman" is the story of a dying soldier and "My Son John" is a moving song about a soldier who comes back home and cannot even begin to describe what he has been through. "Beau John" is a civil rights era song about taking a stand against racial injustice. "A Thousand Years" tells the chilling tale of Neo-Nazi uprising, and "Train for Auschwitz" is about the Holocaust. "On the Road to Srebrenica" is about Bosnian Muslims who were killed in a 1995 massacre in Bosnia and Herzegovina. "The Bravest" is a song about the firefighters who gave their lives while trying to save others on September 11, 2001. Then there are Paxton's "short shelf life songs", which are topical songs about current events and things in the news. These songs can be lighthearted and comical, or serious depending on the situation, and they change all the time as new ones are written and old ones can reappear as things seem to have a way of cycling around in this world. They include: "In Florida", about the 2000 election; "Without DeLay", a song about the former congressman; "Bobbitt", about John and Lorena Bobbitt; "Little Bitty Gun", which lampoons Nancy Reagan; "I'm Changing My Name to Chrysler", about the federal loan guarantee to Chrysler in 1979 (which was rewritten in 2008 as "I Am Changing My Name to Fannie Mae" about the 700 billion dollar "bailout of the U.S. financial system"); "The Ballad of Spiro Agnew", and "Lyndon Johnson Told the Nation" (which became "George W. Told the Nation" in 2007).

  • Tom Paxton (31 oktober 1937) is een Amerikaanse folk-zanger en singer-songwriter die in 2009 een Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award kreeg voor zijn meer dan veertig jaar lange carrière.Nadat hij afgestudeerd was verbleef hij eind jaren vijftig en begin jaren zestig vaak in Greenwich Village waar op dat moment de folk een revival kende. Zijn carrière begint echt pas nadat hij zijn legerdienst heeft vervuld en in Greenwich begint op te treden en het podium deelde met mensen als Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Dave Van Ronk en Mississippi John Hurt. In 1963 coverde Pete Seeger een aantal van zijn nummers, en Paxton zelf trad dat jaar op op het Newport Folk Festival. Paxton wordt als één van de pioniers gezien van de folkrevival omdat hij niet enkel traditionals speelde, maar één van de eersten was die eigen nummers bracht. Paxton kreeg een hoop muzikale onderscheidingen en zijn nummers werden door tientallen artiesten gecoverd. Hij nam ondertussen meer dan vijftig albums op.
  • Том Пакстон (Tom Paxton, 31 октября 1937, Чикаго, Иллинойс) — американский автор-исполнитель, один из ведущих представителей фолк-сцены 1960-х годов, оказавший заметное влияние на её развитие. Пакстон, которого (согласно Allmusic) можно считать основным «долгожителем» движения фолк-возрождения, зародившегося в Гринвич Виллидж, был во многом ближе к поколению фолк-исполнителей конца 1950-х годов, таких, как Дэйв ван Ронк, чем к фолкстерам нового десятилетия (Бобу Дилану или Филу Оксу). Но, как Дилан с Оксом (и в отличие от предшественников), Пакстон был активно вовлечён в левое движение и стал автором многих знаменитых песен протеста. С другой стороны, подобно Питу Сигеру (и в отличие от Дилана) Паксон никогда не собирался переходить в мейнстрим и ни разу не взял руки электрогитару.Пакстон, многие песни которого («The Last Thing on My Mind», «What Did You Learn in School Today?», «Bottle of Wine», «Whose Garden Was This?», «The Marvelous Toy», «Ramblin' Boy» и др.) становились известными в исполнении известнейших музыкантов жанра (Пит Сигер, The Weavers, Джуди Коллинз, Джоан Баэз, Гарри Белафонте, Peter, Paul and Mary, The Kingston Trio, и др.) в 2009 году получил Grammy за вклад в развитие музыки (Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award).

  • Thomas Richard Paxton (* 31. října 1937, Chicago, USA) je výrazně sociálně angažovaný americký folkový písničkář, zpěvák a kytarista.Narodil se v Chicagu, od roku 1948 jeho rodina žila v Oklahomě. Během své vojenské služby (1959) se seznámil s Pete Seegerem a dalšími americkými folkaři. Po vojně žil v New Yorku a vystupoval v tamních klubech (od r. 1960).Za nejlepší bývají považována jeho první dvě alba I'm the Man That Built the Bridges [live] (Gaslight, 1962) a Ramblin' Boy (Elektra, 1964).K nejznámějším písním patří The Last Thing On My Mind (na české folkové scéně lze píseň identifikovat hned ve třech verzích: Poslední klekání od Žalmana, Lidská přání od Brontosaurů a Slečna Sen Country Beatu Jiřího Brabce v podání Nadi Urbánkové), dětem určená píseň Goin´ To The ZOO a I Can´t Help But Wonder Where I'm Bound (u nás hrála kroměřížská skupina SIROTCI pod názvem Starý tulák). Üčastní se řady folkových festivalů a jeho popularita kulminovala kolem roku 1969. Pod vlivem Jacquese Brela se počátkem 70. let pokoušel dát svým písním složitější aranže. Jeho písně byly často přebírány (mj. Judy Collins, Pete Seeger, Move, John Denver, Peter, Paul & Mary, Willie Nelson). Od poloviny 70. let žil v Anglii a jeho tvůrčí aktivita v tomto období klesla.V současnosti žije se svou ženou Midge v Alexandrii ve Virginii. Mají dvě dcery Jennifer a Kate a tři vnuky Chritophera, Seana a Petera, kteří jsou pro něj velkou inspirací ve tvorbě písniček pro děti.
