One of most enjoyable concerts I have been to in recent years was the World Folk Music Association's 2008 tribute to Tom Paxton, honoring the singer-songwiter's seventieth birthday. A large number of performers sang Paxton's songs well into the evening and it was amazing to realize that every song was familiar to the sold-out house at the Schlesinger Auditorium.
Recently I came across a clip on Youtube of one of the performances from that evening featuring Noel Paul Stookey and Peter Yarrow. It makes you wonder if Noel Stookey's main ambition in life is to break up his friend on stage.
Look closely and you'll see Tom Paxton in the box seat laughing along.
