Blues artist Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton has WOWED the crowds in Raleigh and beyond with his humor and storytelling. From the streets of the Wide Open Bluegrass StreetFest to the intimacy of Fletcher Theater, his performances are memorable and mesmerizing. This coming year, he’ll perform a full evening concert as part of the Down Home Series! Paxton is a singer and multi-instrumentalist who transforms traditional jazz, blues, folk, and country music into the here and now. He is still in his 20s, and he is often described as a young man with an old soul. Paxton was one of 20 musicians featured in the PBS special American Epic Sessions – a documentary presented by T. Bone Burnett, Robert Redford, and Jack White. The documentary features performances by Alabama Shakes, The Avett Brothers, Rhiannon Giddens, Merle Haggard, Elton John, Auntie Geri Kuhia, Pokey LaFarge, Bettye LaVette, Los Lobos, Lost Bayou Ramblers, Taj Mahal, Steve Martin & Edie Brickell, Willie Nelson, Raphael Saadiq, and many more. In addition to being a virtuosic musician, Paxton has been the Artistic Director of the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival & Workshop in Washington state since 2015.
