An Evening with Jerron ‘Blind Boy’ Paxton

An Evening with Jerron ‘Blind Boy’ Paxton

The Sugar Club, Friday 24th May - Sunday 26th May 2019

Join Jerron ‘Blind Boy' Paxton in celebrating heritage, culture, the blues, comedy and some of the best musicianship you are likely to see on a night out. Although still in his 20's, Paxton has earned a reputation for transporting audiences back to the 1920's and making them wish they could stay there for good. Blind Boy Paxton may be one of the greatest multi-instrumentalists that you have not heard of. Yet. And time is getting short, fast.

Jerron performed to a sold out audience at the Lead Belly Tribute at Carnegie Hall in 2016, along with Buddy Guy, Eric Burdon, Edgar Winter, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and other stars. In the two years since his incredible performance at that star-studded show, Paxton's own star has been rising fast. He opened for Buddy Guy at B.B. Kings in NYC; for Robert Cray at the Reading PA Blues Festival, and performed at numerous other festivals including: Woodford Folk Festival & Byron Bay Blues Festival in Australia; Calgary Folk Festival in Canada; Jewel City Jam in Huntington WV; Freihofers Jazz Festival in Saratoga Springs FL; Clearwater Festival in Croton-on-The Hudson NY; Fayetteville Roots Festival in Fayetteville AR: Cambridge Folk Festival in the UK, Harvest Time Rhythm & Blues Festival in Monaghan; and headlined the 2017 Brooklyn Folk Festival.

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 mesmerises audiences with his humour and storytelling. He's a world-class talent and a uniquely colourful character.
