Adults Only Show: Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton


Adults Only Show: Jerron

Paxton seems to effortlessly embody the spirit of early twentieth century musics including ragtime, ’20s jazz and Dust Bowl–era blues, delivering them through a dizzying display of virtuosity on guitar, piano, banjo, and lately, fiddle.

Just as you’d imagine at sunset on a dusty porch, he sings about love, hate and never missing your water until your well runs dry, delighting audiences with bawdy but endearing humour – getting away with the dirtiest verses, and jokes whenever he can. And on this show, folks, he will.
