Together At Last: Folk Music Icons Janis Ian & Tom Paxton

Together At Last: Folk Music Icons Janis Ian & Tom Paxton to perform at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Thursday, April 9, 2015 Ponte Vedra Beach, FL-- (Wednesday, August 27, 2014) — The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall proudly presents Janis Ian & Tom Paxton live on Thursday, April 9, 2015. Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, August 29 at 10 a.m. Who are the great songwriters in America today? Not the most popular, not the richest. Simply the greats. Ask any student of the form and Janis Ian will be counted among them. The writer of “Jesse”, a song recorded by so many others that few remember Ian wrote it; “Stars,” possibly the best song ever written about the life of a performer; and the seminal “At Seventeen”, a song that brought her five Grammy nominations. Ian began her mostly stellar, sometimes stormy, professional life at the age of 12 when she wrote her first song and was published by Broadside Magazine. That led to her first “real” show, at New York’s venerable Village Gate, where she shared a stage with Tom Paxton, Lou Gossett Jr., Judy Collins, Phil Ochs, and a host of other singer-songwriters. “At Seventeen” became her trademark song and, along with the album on which it debuted, ‘Between the Lines’, it earned five Grammy nominations and two wins including Best Pop Female Performance and Best Engineered Recording. The song has since joined “Society’s Child” as inductees in the Grammy Hall of Fame. In her fifth decade of writing songs and performing, Ian won her second Grammy Award of nine total nominations over the years in eight categories. Her 2013 Grammy, presented at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, is for Best Spoken Word Album for her audio book "Society's Child”. [ More ]
