TOM PAXTON The Final Tour       

TICKET ALERT:  This concert is sold out.  Because all seats are presold, no cancellations or additional seating will be available at the door.

“I feel like I’m closing a circle.  After November 14, when I play in Alexandria, Virginia, I’m going to stop touring forever.”  -Tom Paxton. 

Thankfully, before Tom closes that circle, he has happily agreed to visit Chatham, for a bittersweet final appearance produced jointly by The Sanctuary Concerts and our friends at The Folk ProjectPlease come out and wish Tom the best in the next chapter of his remarkable journey. 

From the 1960's, when he would leave his army base at Fort Dix, NJ to haunt the Village folk clubs at the height of the Great Folk Boom, through almost six decades as probably the most widely-known folk songwriter since Woody Guthrie, Tom Paxton has been the beloved voice of a generation...addressing issues of injustice and inhumanity; laying bare the absurdities of modern culture; and celebrating the most tender bonds of family, friends and community. He is often outspoken, often wonderfully funny, and always accessible and warm-hearted.

Dozens of Tom's songs have become absorbed into our oral tradition: "Ramblin' Boy," "Bottle of Wine," "Whose Garden Was This," "The Last Thing On My Mind," "Goin' to the Zoo," and "The Marvelous Toy" are just a few. He's recorded 34 albums, published 16 children's books, and had his songs covered by hundreds of artists as diverse as Pete Seeger, Willie Nelson and Placido Domingo. He's also a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner and an ASCAP Lifetime Achievement Award winner.

To kick off the evening, the Folk Project will showcase three of its member-performers: Jean Rohe, Mike Agranoff, and Sanctuary's own Christine DeLeon (Del Vecchio).  

Tickets: $30

Sat., August 22 8pm in Chatham
RED MOLLY Last Tour Before Indefinite Hiatus
Longtime Sanctuary favorites Red Molly are a beloved female Americana roots trio that feature three-part harmonies, crisp musicianship, and warm, witty stage banter.

Laurie MacAllister (bass, banjo), Abbie Gardner (dobro, banjo) and Molly Venter (guitar) have been part of the Sanctuary family, and we have cheered them on as they have grown from local rising stars to in-demand international touring artists.

Now, the group are going on indefinite hiatus at the end of August, with no current plans to get back together, so this may be our last chance to enjoy them.   Please join us to see them off on their journey and to wish them the best.

Tickets: $25

Sat., August 8 8pm in Chatham

TICKET ALERT:  This concert is sold out.  Because all seats are presold, no cancellations or additional seating will be available at the door.

Judy Collins'  crystalline voice, captured in more than 50 albums and honored with multiple Grammy awards, top-ten hits, and platinum records,  will fill the room at our intimate venue in Chatham. 

Tickets: $45

Sat., Oct. 17 8pm in Chatham
TICKET ALERT:  Less than 20 seats are available for this concert.  At the current pace, those seats should be sold out in the very near future.  Please consider purchasing soon. 

To say that Leo Kottke "plays guitar" is like saying that LeBron James "shoots a few hoops."  Leo's unmistakable syncopated and polyphonic fingerpicking style draws on blues, jazz and folk influences, which can be heard on his classic songs “June Bug,” “Pamela Brown,” “Julie’s House,” “Pepe Hush” and “Jack Gets Up.”

But, don't take our word for it.  Leo's been honored with two Grammy nominations, a Doctorate in Music Performance by the Peck School of Music, and the coveted Certificate of Significant Achievement in Not Playing the Trombone from the University of Texas.  Though, when it comes to Leo visiting The Sanctuary, the honor is all ours.

Tickets: $30
