7th Annual Toronto Healing Garden MusicFest

Tom Paxton and the Don Juans:

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!


The Good Brothers:...


Fast-forward forty years - and they're still here. No long breaks for the Goods - they kept making records, and gigged relentlessly. In 2004 they were honoured by being inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame as well as two nominations for Country Group and Roots Artist of the year at the Canadian Country Music Awards. In 2015 they received a “Lifetime Achievement Award” from the Toronto Musicians Association and in 2016 were inducted into the North American Country Music Association International Hall of Fame in Tennessee.  Next year they're off to tour Europe, again; this will be their 39th tour on the other side of the Atlantic. They've kept the flame burning, and the music going and those determined dancers have never stopped. The 80's and 90's and millennium came and went, and Canada's musical soundtrack, through all those years, included The Good Brothers.

Today the sibling harmonies are still there on their soon to be released sixteenth recording. The fleetness of banjo, guitar, and autoharp is often joined by the fiddle, mandolin and guitars. Their music lives on and the songs still come straight from their hearts to your tapping toes and the smile on your face.
