Fifty years on from his first UK tour in 1965, US folk music legend Tom Paxton is back on tour, and you can catch him at the Sage Gateshead on 13 May.

This tour will also mark the release of his studio album Redemption Road released on 13 April.

The past five decades have seen Tom record many enduring songs, and play thousands of live performances around the world, as well as a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award in 2009.

Celebrated amongst his peers and audiences alike, he is one of the most highly regarded, loved, and best known folk singer/songwriters of his generation.

With timeless classics such as The Last Thing On My Mind, Bottle Of Wine, and Ramblin' Boy, he portrays through his songs and his famously generous nature a true desire for justice, and to bring people together.

We are all born singing Tom Paxton songs"
