Come along on a trip through the world of blues, jazz, ragtime and folk in 1920s USA. Jerron ‘Blind Boy’ Paxton, born in 1989, has long been enthusing his audiences and his fellow musicians with his authentic interpretations of the vast American roots music heritage. He is dexterous on guitar, banjo, piano, violin and accordion, while showing prowess as showman and storyteller.

Jerron Paxton can remind his concert audience of Fats Waller or ‘Blind’ Lemon Jefferson. In a matter of a few years, he has carved himself a position as a distinguished representant for acoustic blues on a par with Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’. The epithet Blind Boy came when he lost his sight as a young man. In 2012, the magazine Living Blues had Jerron Paxton on the cover with the words “The Next Generation of the Acoustic Blues.”

He also played in the filmed documentary “American Epic Sessions” (2017), a film about the recording sound and technology of the 1920s, directed by Bernard MacMahon with sound production by T Bone Burnett and Jack White. Jerron Paxton performs solo at Tønder Festival, his only Danish festival concert in 2022.
