BiographySinger-Songwriter Tom Paxton has managed to sustain a long career in a fickle business, probably due to the fact that, despite being a star in the Folk music world, he never became a Pop phenomenon. He was a part of the early-'60s Greenwich Village Folk Music scene and his song "The Last Thing On My Mind" was a genuine hit and has been covered many times. Paxton has a low-key tenor voice and he is a good acoustic guitar player. He has recorded prolifically and has always put his strong social conscious right up front in his music.
