Blind Boy Paxton (USA)

Here’s a ticket for a trip back to the blues, jazz, ragtime and folk of 1920s USA. Jerron ‘Blind Boy’ Paxton, born in 1989, has won fans among audiences and fellow musicians with his convincing versions of the great American roots music heritage. He plays first-rate guitar, banjo, piano, violin, and accordion, and is moreover an excellent showman and story-teller. Blind Boy Paxton can sound like Fats Waller or ‘Blind’ Lemon Jefferson. In a short span of years he has earned a place among the front runners in acoustic blues, on a par with Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’. In 2012, Living Blues magazine had Blind Boy Paxton on the cover with the caption The Next Generation of the Acoustic Blues. He appeared in the 2017 documentary American Epic Sessions, a film about the recording technologies of 1920s’ music, directed by Bernard MacMahon, with T Bone Burnett and Jack White as co-producers. Solo – and his only Danish festival concert in 2020.
