American Strings: An Evening With Tom Paxton

October 24th 7:30pm
Starker Auditorium
Tickets: $20 in advance, $25 at the door.

An integral part of the songwriting and folk music community since the early 60’s Greenwich Village scene, Tom Paxton has become a celebrated voice of his generation -- addressing the issues of injustice and inhumanity, laying bare the absurdities of modern culture and celebrating the tender bonds of family, friends, and community.

Paxton is a GRAMMY® Lifetime Achievement Award Winner and an ASCAP Lifetime Achievement Award Winner. Regarded as one of the great songwriters of our time, he is the man who wrote and lives by those words, “Sweet peace, peace will come, and let it begin with me.”

The American Strings series brings renowned artists from around the U.S. to Corvallis and Oregon State University for an in-depth look at how and why stringed instruments play such a profound role in American music.

Hosted by the GRAMMY Museum’s Bob Santelli, the OSU College of Liberal Arts and the Majestic Theatre, the conversation and performance that comprises each segment of American Strings makes for a one of a kind opportunity to appreciate and know better the great American music tradition.
