Why are we so eager for
Slaid Cleaves' sixth visit
The Sanctuary? We love how Slaid combines rootsy rowdiness with gothic twang, creating a
one-of-a-kind folk-country style inspired by his musical heroes Hank
Williams, Johnny Cash, the Everly Brothers, and Woody Guthrie. We love his
timeless stories of the hard times and good luck of folks riding along
life's highways and dead-end streets. And we love his latest album,
Still Fighting The War.
Here's how Slaid fan Stephen King put
"I’m glad I found Slaid Cleaves, because
my life would have been poorer without him. You’ll feel the same, I
think. So, go to one of Slaid’s shows, take a friend, and pass
on the news: not all the good guys wear hats."
Special guest Meg Braun's songs, which often feature allusions to folk
tales and mythology, have been described as “fearless.” She is known
in our area for her performances of Joni Mitchell’s songs with the
collective “Chicks with Dip.”
July 25 7:30PM in
PAXTON The Final Tour
here/sorry, no Pick Six passes
“I feel like I’m closing a circle.
After November 14, when I play in Alexandria, Virginia, I’m going to
stop touring forever.”
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 Project.
Please 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).

Red Molly are a beloved female
Americana roots trio that feature three-part

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
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
