Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton 

When: Sat., July 21, 6 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

Though Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton's barely old enough to drink, he's as authentic a country bluesman as his nickname suggests; he lost his sight at the age of 16. Resembling fellow modern acoustic blues extraordinaire Dom Flemons of the Carolina Chocolate Drops in multiple ways, Paxton shares Flemons' knack for humorous showmanship, encyclopedic knowledge of the blues songbook, penchant for dressing in period attire and proficiency on multiple instruments. The versatile Paxton plays everything from banjo, guitar and fiddle to harmonica, piano and bones on tunes from ancient murder ballads to zesty Cajun numbers. Spencer Griffith
