Jerron 'Blind Boy' Paxton
Watching Jerron ‘Blind Boy’ Paxton perform is like going back in time to 1920 and experiencing blues for the first time. At just 30 years of age, Paxton sings from the heart and paints vivid portraits of the world, both good and bad, happy and sad. More than a Blues guitar virtuoso, Paxton is also a master of the banjo, piano, fiddle, harmonica and the Cajun accordion with the sort of ease you’d expect from old hands like Willie McTell and Lemon Jefferson. After selling out the Folk House last year this is sure to be one hot blues ticket in River Town this summer.
Paxton has an eerie ability to transform traditional jazz, blues, folk, and country into the here and now, and make it real. In addition, he mesmerizes audiences with his humor and storytelling. He’s a world-class talent and a uniquely colorful character that has been on the cover of Living Blues Magazine and the Village Voice, and has been interviewed on FOX News. Paxton’s sound is influenced by the likes of Fats Waller and “Blind” Lemon Jefferson. According to Will Friedwald in the Wall Street Journal, Paxton is “virtually the only music-maker of his generation—playing guitar, banjo, piano and violin, among other implements—to fully assimilate the blues idiom of the 1920s and ‘30s.
