BBC Arena Star lined up for intimate courtroom session

One of the stars of multi award-winning music documentary American Epic brings his vintage blues sound to Middlesbrough Town Hall on Monday, November 12.

Jerron Blind Boy Paxton joined music legends such as Alabama Shakes, Beck, Jack White and Willie Nelson to record live with no edits, overdubs or retakes.

Paxton sings and plays banjo, guitar, piano, fiddle, harmonica, Cajun accordion and has opened for blues legend Buddy Guy at BB King’s in New York.

And now following a US tour, a Middlesbrough audience can enjoy this breath-taking talent in the intimate setting of the Town Hall Courtroom.

Influenced by the likes of Fats Waller and Blind Lemon Jefferson, Paxton is a world-class talent who mesmerises audiences with his humour and storytelling.

Lorna Fulton, Head of Programmes at Middlesbrough Town Hall, said: “We are excited to welcome Jerron Paxton to Middlesbrough Town Hall on November 12.

“Paxton is an incredible multi-instrumentalist and a true songster, mixing Appalachian music with ragtime, hokum, old time and reels.”

Jerron Blind Boy Paxton will be the second Courtroom Session in the series of Americana acts in partnership with The Jumpin’ Hot Club.
