I've been told that Midge Paxton died. I sent him an email rather than calling him, because he will be swamped with calls.
Life sucks, especially when it ends.
Kendall, I moved this up and changed the title. Hope that's OK. -JC

So sorry to hear this. Tom has made it plain that the wonderful quality of his love songs has in great part come from trying to express his love for Midge adequately.

I've seen Tom perform over many years (in Glasgow, Scotland) and bought his recordings over that same period.
There are many of his political songs that move me; many of his humorous songs that brought a big smile -- as well as an appreciation of his skill with words, rhyme and rhythm; and always there were the love songs! As a Scot, my standard for love songs has to be Robert Burns, but Tom is a real contender….
Burns was working with known traditional tunes, to which he added poignant and heartfelt lyrics: the result was masterpieces like 'My Love is like a Red, Red Rose' and 'Ae Fond Kiss' etc.
But Tom had to provide both the music and the lyrics, so it was always evident that Midge was a very wonderful person!

So sorry to hear the news that this very special partnership has ended.

When one listens to Tom Paxton sing his songs one easily picks up the passion he has for his music. It is apparent in his protest songs; it is even more apparent in his love songs.

Sad to hear of this: his love for his family as a whole was very evident in his songs. I remember one year he was booked for Celtic Connections in Glasgow but could not come as Midge was unwell: we sang "Last Thing on my Mind" for them both.

I only met the lady once. When they were in Perth and I hosted a Barbeque for them.
She was a lovely lady and I am very sorry to hear of her passing. My condolences to Tom and her children.
