Blind Boy Paxton may be one of the greatest multi-instrumentalists that you have not heard of. Yet. And time is getting short\, fast. \n   Jerron performed to a sold out audience at the Lead Belly Tribute at Carnegie Hall on February 4\, 2016 along with Buddy Guy\, Eric Burdon\, Edgar Winter\, Kenny Wayne Shepherd\, and other stars. It is no exaggeration to say that Paxton made a huge impression. In the two years since his incredible performance at that star-studded show in one of the world’s great concert houses\, 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 Ireland; and headlined the 2017 Brooklyn Folk Festival. \n Jerron Paxton is a two-time participant in the Keeping The Blues Alive Cruise and is the new Artistic Director of the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival & Workshop at Centrum in Port Townsend\, WA. \n   Paxton was featured on CNN’s Great Big Story and appeared in the multi award winning music documentary AMERICAN EPIC produced by Robert Redford\, Jack White & T-Bone Burnett. In October and November 2018 Jerron ‘Blind Boy’ Paxton will be touring the U.S. with the musicians from this groundbreaking AMERICAN EPIC SESSIONS music documentary. \n   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.” \n URL:https://www.unisonarts.org/event/jerron-blind-boy-paxton/ LOCATION:Unison Arts Center\, 68 Mountain Rest Road\, New Paltz\, 12561\, United States CATEGORIES:Events,Music,Performance ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.unisonarts.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/jerron-event.jpg GEO:41.7558174;-74.1083498 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=Unison Arts Center 68 Mountain Rest Road New Paltz 12561 United States;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=68 Mountain Rest Road:geo:-74.1083498,41.7558174 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20180526T200000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20180526T220000 DTSTAMP:20191214T165544 CREATED:20180221T192217Z LAST-MODIFIED:20180507T152558Z UID:3333-1527364800-1527372000@www.unisonarts.org SUMMARY:An Evening of Poetic Guitar: HIROYA TSUKAMOTO DESCRIPTION:Hiroya is a one-of-a-kind composer\, guitarist and singer-songwriter from Kyoto\, Japan.

He also created one of the bedrock guitar styles of the folk revival\, adapting the ragtime-blues fingerpicking of artists like Blind Boy Fuller to the more complex chords of pop and jazz. He has maintained a remarkably consistent musical vision since his jug band days\, continuing to explore traditional folk and blues with the sophisticated sensibility of a jazz musician and jazz with the communal simplicity of a folk artist. He has recorded solo ventures\, as a member of the U and I band\, and with U and I bandmate Samoa Wilson\, and continues to perform widely in various formats. In recent years he and Geoff Muldaur have often appeared as a duo\, revisiting and expanding on their Jug Band repertoire. \nhttps://youtu.be/I9LGruqQcUc \nOpening up for Jim is Hudson Valley native & singer songwriter\, David Kraai: \nhttps://www.facebook.com/davidkraai \nDavid Kraai (pronounced cry\, meaning crow) is a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter who has been traveling and performing his melting pot of country\, folk and rock music for over a decade.

Carrying on the tradition of Cosmic American Music\, David’s influences include Gram Parsons\, Neil Young\, Bob Dylan and The Band. These influences along with his unique sense of melody and lyric help create a sound that is truly his own. Kraai has been fortunate enough to release several albums and share stages and bills with some of his heroes like Pete Seeger\, Levon Helm\, Garth Hudson\, Dickey Betts\, Leon Russell\, Charlie Louvin\, Dr. Ralph Stanley and more. \nCall (845) 255-1559 to Reserve Tickets:\n$25: General Admission\n$22: Seniors\n$20: Members\n$15: Students \n URL:https://www.unisonarts.org/event/jim-kweskin-featuring-david-kraai/ LOCATION:Unison Arts Center\, 68 Mountain Rest Road\, New Paltz\, 12561\, United States CATEGORIES:Events,Music ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.unisonarts.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/jim-kweskin-event.jpg GEO:41.7558174;-74.1083498 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=Unison Arts Center 68 Mountain Rest Road New Paltz 12561 United States;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=68 Mountain Rest Road:geo:-74.1083498,41.7558174 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20180713T183000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20180713T220000 DTSTAMP:20191214T165544 CREATED:20180611T170719Z LAST-MODIFIED:20180625T150946Z UID:5601-1531506600-1531519200@www.unisonarts.org SUMMARY:SECOND FRIDAYS SWING DANCE DESCRIPTION:Back by popular demand\, enjoy a night of swing dancing led by Emily Vanston with live music by La Familia Swinging Blues Band! \nIntermediate/Advanced swing lessons\nfrom 6:30PM – 7:30PM (Fee $10)\n*Must be comfortable with the 8-count swing out \nFree Intro/beginner lesson for new dancers\nfrom 7:30PM – 8PM \nSwing Dance Party 8PM-10PM\n$12 Non-Member\n$10 Students & Members \nWine will be available. Purchase tickets at the door. \n URL:https://www.unisonarts.org/event/second-fridays-swing-dance-5/ LOCATION:Unison Arts Center\, 68 Mountain Rest Road\, New Paltz\, 12561\, United States CATEGORIES:Dance,Dance / Movement,Events,Music,Performance,Workshops & Classes ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.unisonarts.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/swing-event-la-fam.jpg GEO:41.7558174;-74.1083498 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=Unison Arts Center 68 Mountain Rest Road New Paltz 12561 United States;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=68 Mountain Rest Road:geo:-74.1083498,41.7558174 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20180728T200000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20180728T220000 DTSTAMP:20191214T165544 CREATED:20180626T135555Z LAST-MODIFIED:20180723T150943Z UID:5959-1532808000-1532815200@www.unisonarts.org SUMMARY:RUDRA World Jazz Fusion DESCRIPTION:Join us for an evening of incredible world jazz fusion featuring Bobby Rozario\, Fernando Garcia\, Swaminathan Selvaganesh & Premik Russell Tubbs \nPremik Russel Tubbs: Currently Premik is a part of the Rudra project and has also performed on the Rudra Album produced by guitarist Bobby Rozario\, where they perform original compositions blending hindustani classical and western jazz.

The last 30 years have seen the San Francisco Bay Area based act release seventeen critically acclaimed CDs and play more than 2\,500 gigs. It’s also enjoyed an evolving line-up that’s enabled musicianship and creativity to rise with each new member. \nHailing from Oslo\, Norway\, founding member and lead singer/electric mandolinist\, Lief Sorbye\, is recognized as a driving force in the modern folk-rock movement. He started Tempest after years of touring and recording on the folk circuit. San Francisco fiddler Kathy Buys brings her international award winning playing to the Tempest stage. Her experience performing world-fusion music with high energy dance bands combined with many years of playing Irish traditional music in America and Ireland makes her a perfect fit for Tempest. Driving in from the North Bay area is Josh Fossgreen\, an exceptional musical talent whose innovative bass textures add a rich dimension to the Tempest soundscape. And Northern California’s own young Indian-American progressive guitarist\, Ab Menon\, skids to a flaming stop on the Tempest stage\, replete with flying dreadlocks\, dazzling string stylings and a sense of ticklish fun.
