BLIND BOY PAXTON
US bluesman Blind Boy Paxton has announced a six-date New Zealand tour for February 2018, including a return to one of his favourite venues, the Black Barn Growers' Market on Saturday 17 February.
Blind Boy Paxton is the living embodiment of the true blues in the 21st Century, but plays it all in the true songster tradition - ragtime, hokum, old time, French reels, Appalachian mountain music, blues and lots more.
The multi-instrumentalist has earned a reputation for transporting audiences back to the 1920s and making them wish they could stay.
He sings and plays the banjo, guitar, piano, fiddle, harmonica, Cajun accordion, and the bones. He has the eerie ability to transform traditional jazz, blues, folk, and country into the here and now, and make it real.
If you were lucky enough to see Blind Boy on the last occasion don't miss this opportunity to see the extraordinary bluesman re-live at Black Barn this February.
