Tom Paxton

June 12. Rightly awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for a career that spans more than 50 years, singer-songwriter Tom Paxton is an outright folk legend. The Chicago-born composer of such treasured tunes as "The Last Thing on My Mind," "Bottle of Wine," and "Ramblin' Boy," Paxton was a mainstay of the original Greenwich Village folk scene. His songs have been loved and sung by everyone from Bob Dylan to the Weavers, Joan Baez, Harry Belafonte, Doc Watson, Peter, Paul and Mary, Willie Nelson, John Denver, Marianne Faithful, the Move, and folk's big daddy, Pete Seeger. Certainly the interior walls of Infinity Music Hall, the site of this date, will resound with voices singing along to Paxton's eternal standards when he performs there. The Zolla Boys open. (Robert Cray smokes June 3; Butch Hancock holds forth June 25.) 8pm. $32-$40. Norwalk, Connecticut. (866) 666-6306; Infinityhall.com.
