Tom Rawson – a banjo-playing, crowd-delighting folksinger – performs songs of peace, social justice and just plain fun on Saturday, February 6, 2010, at 7:30 p.m. at Traditions Café at the corner of 5th and Water SW in downtown Olympia.
Rawson has charmed and invigorated audiences throughout the Pacific Northwest with his infectious wit, energy and songs that you just can’t resist singing along with.
As Steve Durfee wrote in the Victory Review, “Tom Rawson – Pete Seeger. These two run together in my mind. We gladly follow his lead and sing with the chorus from the very first song… First timer or old fan, old song or new, it always seems we are singing our favorites with an old friend.”
Admission to Rawson’s performance, a benefit for the Olympia chapter of the Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR), is based on a self-determined sliding scale donation of $10 to $25.
