Although only in his 20s, 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. 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.
Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton has been nominated for an inaugural International Folk Music Award in the category of Artist of the Year. The winners will be revealed at the Folk Alliance International Awards Gala at 6pm on Feb 17th, 2016 at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, MO.
