Althoughonly in his twenties, Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton has earned a reputation fortransporting audiences back to the 1920’s and making them wish they could staythere for good. An amazing multi-instrumentalist, his ability totransform traditional jazz, blues, folk, and country into the here and now –coupled with his humor and storytelling – makes for a uniquely engagingperformance. Paxton was nominated this year for the International FolkMusic Artist of the Year.
“Paxtonseems to effortlessly embody the spirit of early music including ragtime, ‘20sjazz and Dust Bowl-era blues, delivering them through a dizzying display ofvirtuosity on guitar, piano, banjo, and fiddle.” – Living Blues
