“BLIND BOY” PAXTON–Mind-Blowing Blues with Modern Soul

June 8 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

- $10 – $25

We are so excited to have Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton returning to Unison after last year’s sold out stellar performance! He is sure to deliver a subtle yet amazing combination of traditional blues framed in contemporary social issues.

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 mesmerizes audiences with his humor and storytelling. He’s a world-class talent and a uniquely colorful character that has been on the cover of Living Blues Magazine and the Village Voice, and has been interviewed on FOX News. Paxton’s sound is influenced by the likes of Fats Waller and “Blind” Lemon Jefferson. According to Will Friedwald in the Wall Street Journal, Paxton is “virtually the only music-maker of his generation—playing guitar, banjo, piano and violin, among other implements—to fully assimilate the blues idiom of the 1920s and ‘30s.”
