US folk music legend Tom Paxton will play The Ulster Hall on Sunday, May 10, 50 years on from his first UK tour, it has been announced.

The five decades in-between have seen Tom record many enduring songs, perform thousands of live concerts around the world and receive a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

His forthcoming tour also marks the release of his new studio album, Redemption Road, just released on April 13.

He portrays a true desire to bring people together through his music, as demonstrated by timeless classics such as The Last Thing On My Mind, Bottle Of Wine and Ramblin’ Boy.
