Jerron 'Blind Boy' Paxton
Joyful Noise and the Low-Down Blues
Although only 30 years old, Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton has earned a reputation for transporting audiences back to the 1920s and making them wish they could stay there for good. An amazing multi-instrumentalist — he plays banjo, guitar, piano, ddle, harmonica, Cajun accordion, and the bones — his ability to transform traditional jazz, blues, folk, and country into the here and now, coupled with his humor and storytelling, make for a uniquely exciting evening. Paxton was featured on CNN’s “Great Big Story” and appeared in the award-winning music documentary “American Epic,” produced by Robert Redford, Jack White, and T-Bone Burnett.

“It’s not uncommon for his audiences to whoop, holler, and stomp in unison — hard enough to shake the floor. Paxton shifts from piano to guitar to fiddle to a five-string banjo that looks like he time-traveled to the 1920s, stole it from a juke joint, and dropped it on the ground a few times on the way back.” – The Village Voice
