Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton has earned a reputation for transporting audiences back to the 1920’s. Paxton may be one of the greatest multi-instrumentalists that you have not heard of. Yet. And time is getting short, fast. Paxton performed to a sold out audience for the Lead Belly Tribute at Carnegie Hall on February 4, 2016 along with the likes of Buddy Guy, Eric Burdon, Dom Flemons, Tom Paley, and other stars. It is no exaggeration to say that Paxton impressed.
This young musician sings and plays banjo, guitar, piano, fiddle, harmonica, Cajun accordion, and the bones (percussion). 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. Paxton will be joined by The Americans, an original rock & roll band with deep roots in traditional American music.
