Tom Paxton with Walter Crockett opening (Folk Acoustic)

Tom Paxton has become a voice of his generation, addressing issues of injustice and inhumanity, laying bare the absurdities of modern culture, and celebrating the tenderest bonds of family, friends, and community. In describing Tom Paxton's influence on his fellow musicians, Pete Seeger has said: "Tom's songs have a way of sneaking up on you. You find yourself humming them, whistling them, and singing a verse to a friend. Like the songs of Woody Guthrie, they're becoming part of America."

John Henry's Hammer Coffeehouse - Tony Soul Delta Blues Project

The Delta Blues Project was formed several months ago and includes Tony Parente on lead vocals, Matt Sambito on bass and vocals, Mike Kalenderian on guitar and vocals, Mississippi Bob Cramer on slide guitar and Phil DeLaine on drums.

"The Tony Soul Project takes many of the standards of the Delta and surrounding areas and their influence and puts a monstrous bass line and backbeat to make the likes of Elmore, Muddy, T-Model, RL, Wolf, Hooker, come to life. Our style is the modernization of old blues standards," said Parente.
