Facebook events page: https://www.facebook.com/events/624736237668049/ Very pleased to be hosting Jerron Paxton and booking his 2016 tour's, and what better show to host than the amazing Old Barn Sessions at the Cock Inn in Sarratt.
Blind Boy Paxton is coming to the UK in July to play at Cambridge Folk Festival and we're luckily enough to have him before he gets to big to play our cosy barn stage! This show will sell out so my your tickets early!
Paxton seems to effortlessly embody the spirit of early music including ragtime, 20's jazz
and Dust Bowl–era blues, delivering them through a dizzying display of virtuosity on guitar, piano, banjo, and lately, fiddle. And his delivery in dress, manner, speech, and humor of the period is so spot-on that it seems impossible that it is all contained within one so young.
He can usually be found in smart overalls and a starched white shirt buttoned to the top,
with a pocket watch and fob and either a derby hat or yarmulke topping his cherubic face. With his perpetually wry expression, Paxton is part old-school bluesman, part trickster. From looks alone, you might think he was the great-grandson of Willie Dixon or Lemon Jefferson.
Paxton’s talents first came to light a few years ago on the Los Angeles folk circuit with his
sometime playing partner and fellow musical time-machine traveler, Frank Fairfield. Festival appearances and small gigs around the country followed, and now Paxton’s base of operations is New York City, where he’s an essential player in the old-time music scene surrounding Brooklyn’s Jalopy Theater.
