Tom Paxton was at Janis' very first public show, at New York's famed Village Gate. Janis was just 13 years old. She received a standing ovation but since she was nervous and already headed back to her seat, she had no idea it was happening. (She also hadn't attended enough concerts to know that you were supposed to take an encore!) Tom, along with Lou Gossett Jr, Phil Ochs, and a few other performers, urged her to "Go back, kid - go back!"
The show these two dear friends put on, with the able assistance of multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire Robin Bullock, is living proof that "the sum is greater than the parts." In addition to singing old favorites like "Ramblin' Boy" and "At 17", they sing on each others' songs, add harmonies and instrumentals, and share the stage for what feels like far too short a time.
Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity!
