Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton
Worthing Piers Southern Pavilion, Worthing.

Although only in his 20s, Jerron "Blind Boy” Paxton from the USA 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 recently along with the likes of Buddy Guy, Eric Burdon, etc. It is no exaggeration to say that Paxton impressed.
Jerron Paxton is well versed in multiple instruments as well as a respected vocalist of the modern era. His style draws directly from yesteryear jazz and blues music, the kind that was popular before the Second World War. It is easy to feel his personal role models that include, but are not limited to, “Blind” Lemon Jefferson and Fats Waller.
What truly sets Paxton apart though is his ability to play the piano, violin, banjo, guitar and many other instruments with absolute harmony and then somehow add lyrics to the mix that suddenly brings out the perfect balance between instruments and vocals. Anything that Blind Boy Paxton does is rhythmic and soul soothing!
His talent and abilities have earned him concerts all over the world and a popular reputation with several critics comparing him to yesteryear greats such as Keb Mo, Corey Harris and Taj Mahal.
Jerron Paxton has been blind since age 16, with peripheral vision problems that allow him some sight.
So pull up a chair, sip your drink and sit back for one night only and listen while Jerron takes you back with a smile to authentic traditional blues the original way.
