Hello and welcome to my website.    I am a musician based in Aspen, performing as a singer/guitarist and freelance bass player in the Roaring Fork and Vail valleys since 1977.  

Here is a list of my regularly scheduled appearances as a singer/guitarist for this winter:

Sundays -        Aspen Highlands Ritz Carlton         4 - 5:30
Mondays -       Snowmass Base Village fire pit       3:30 - 4:30
Wednesdays -  Lynn Britt Cabin family night          5:00 - 7:00
Fridays -         Snowmass Village Westin fire pit   3:30 - 4:30
Saturdays -     12/17,  1/14, 2/11, 3/11 Moonlight Trek Dinners
                          Snowmass Club Golf Course           6:30 - 8:30


During the summer, I appear as a singer/guitarist at the Ritz at the same time, at the Westin on Fridays from 7 to 8, and many evenings at the Burlingame or Lynn Britt cabins entertaining for Blazing Adventure's sunset dinners, or for Maroon Bells Outfitter's horseback campfire dinners.  

On weekend evenings I perform for family get-togethers, wedding rehearsal dinners or other special events.

As an acoustic and electric bass player, I join other musicians to play in bluegrass, jazz or dance bands for parties in Aspen or Vail. When doing a bluegrass gig, I will often step out and call a square dance or two.
Go to the video page to look through the videos of me performing in different musical settings to see if I might be a good fit for your upcoming event.  

You will also find a page that shows my singer/guitarist song list, as well as the store page with links to purchase my kids CD "Smore Songs" and the CD that my wife and I produced back in '84 of Aspen singers of all ages performing X-mas music entitled "Merry Christmas Aspen." John Denver is featured on several of the tracks.

Many of my afternoons are spent teaching music, and I am the musical director for the Aspen Country Day School's spring musical.  For more info visit https://paxtonstudios.musicteachershelper.com

I am often confused for the famous folksinger by the same name, and though I am not "the" Tom Paxton, I had the pleasure of backing him up on guitar and vocals at the Wheeler Opera House in October 2014.  Here is a picture of us backstage with me wearing his signature Greek fisherman's cap.
