Collectively, their songs have been covered by: Harry Belafonte, John Mellencamp, Miranda Lambert, Neil Diamond, Ray Charles, Nancy Griffith, Judy Collins, Pete Seeger, Janis Ian, Kathy Mattea, John Denver, Faith Hill, B.J. Thomas, Blake Shelton, Peter, Paul & Mary and Bob Dylan… just to name a few! Within days of writing and playing together, they knew they were onto something. Now they’re taking it on the road!

Tom Paxton has become a voice of his generation, addressing issues of injustice and inhumanity, laying bare the absurdities of modern culture and celebrating the tenderest bonds of family, friends, and community. Among his many songs that have become standards are The Last Thing on My Mind, Ramblin' Boy, Bottle of Wine, Whose Garden Was This?, Goin' to the Zoo, and The Marvelous Toy.

At Don Henry's shows, you'll easily spot those who have yet to hear his songs. Upon first experiencing them, the listener is often moved to laughter or tests, sometimes both at the same time! And everyone leaves humming, because Don Henry songs songs stay with you.

Mary-Chapin Carpenter said "Jon Venzer writes about the details of our hearts and feelings. His gift is in speaking to these ordinary things which connect us to one another And in recognizing their simple beauty, he transforms them into something extraordinary."
