JUST IN!!! Tom Paxton to participate in World Folk Music Concert to benefit Madison House on June 1, 2013
DC area folk music fans are in for a rare treat June 1 when the World Folk Music Association brings five of its most favorite folk music artists to perform at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland, College Park.
Tom Paxton, a voice of his generation, addressing issues of injustice and inhumanity and celebrating the tenderest bonds of family, friends, and community will join the stellar line up of musicians featuring legendary artist Noel Paul Stookey, of former Peter Paul & Mary fame, who has been altering the musical and ethical landscapes of the world for decades. Appearing with him are singer-songwriter Christine Lavin, Buskin & Batteau, called the most sophisticated music act in folk, and contemporary Christian artist Mack Bailey.
Proceeds of the concert will benefit Madison House Autism Foundation, working to improve quality of life and opportunities for adults with autism. According to WFMA, this is the first time that a majority of proceeds will benefit another organization and the event will feature just four top artists so that the audience can appreciate more music from each musician.
Fans who want to mingle with the musicians can also purchase reception tickets, available in limited number. A silent auction and outright sale of artwork from autistic adults will take place at the concert. To learn more about the musicians, visit wfma.net.
