Tom Pacheco 2018 Labor Day Weekend Shows – September 1st and 2nd


“Tom Pacheco deserves to be mentioned in the same tones of reverence as John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark and Steve Earl” – Dirty Linen

“one of the genuine troubadours of our time”
Maverick Magazine

“quintessentially American songwriter”
Dirty Linen Magazine

“Pacheco can very well stand in a line of great folk singers, ranging from Woody Guthrie, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Pete Seger, and Bob Dylan. There is nothing that makes him less relevant or important than them, except the demands of capitalist culture”  –

“One of America’s greatest songwriting treasures.” Folkwax

“Tom has over the past four decades persistently followed his muse and produced more than twenty albums of thought-provoking, original songs” iROOTS

“Tom Pacheco’s songs take me home to a place I’ve not been but long to see. His magic is in the beauty of the longing – He sings my longing like
no one ever has. Articulates, as only a poet can – The longing…   I adore Tom Pacheco.”  – Mary Gauthier

“Pacheco’s the best, purest, most undecaffeinated voice this side
of Janis Joplin.”Kinky Friedman
