Subject: RE: Tom Paxton, Judy Collins, Richie Havens - NY State Fair
I always say I am glad to be in the south. Wish like the dickens I could be at that concert. I saw Tom Paxton way way way back in the day when he participated in a folk festival in Ft.Lauderdale FL. I must have been 16 or so(y'all really dont think I am gonna tell you how long ago that was do you?) Tom sat on the ground under a tree and gave a lesson in writing and also some tips on playing too. He was such a nice fella, not in the least pretentious. He made us feel just like we had known him all along.
