Folk club offers banjo

Tom Rawson will perform at Norway House for the Victoria Folk Club this Sunday.

“I have a banjo and I’m not afraid to use it,” says Seattle-based folksinger and storyteller Tom Rawson.

Rawson will be performing at Norway House, 1110 Hillside Ave., after the open stage for the Victoria Folk Club this Sunday.

Rawson uses his banjo, as well as his dulcimer and guitar, in the footsteps of Pete Seeger, singing of peace and justice. While holding down a day job teaching at an alternative elementary school, Rawson plays festivals in the summer and concerts and coffee houses in the winter.

Rawson calls himself a song harvester, spending days scouring old albums, festivals, and camps for songs that may be humorous or contemplative but are always something the audience can sing along with.

Sunday, Jan. 15, Open Stage at 7:30 p.m. Feature performer at 9 p.m. entry $5. For more information go to
