A legendary songwriter -- composer of The Last Thing on My Mind. Paxton headed to Greenwich Village in the early 1960s, just in time to join Bob Dylan, Dave Van Ronk, Joan Baez and other troubadours who took over coffeehouse stages and took on the world.  He received a 2009 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy during the 51st Annual GRAMMY Awards. He is considered one of the great songwriters of the last century and will be reckoned as one of the greats in this new century, as well. He’s celebrating the release of his 62nd (or so) album, Redemption Road
