Although only in his twenties, Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton has earned a reputation for transporting audiences back to the 1920’s and making them wish they could stay there for good. An amazing multi-instrumentalist – he plays banjo, guitar, piano, fiddle, 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 engaging performance.

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.

“Easily the most talented young acoustic bluesman to come along in many, many years…Blind Boy Paxton carries the torch for traditional acoustic blues. If you’re good enough, everything else falls into place.” – The New York Times
