Jerron Paxton

Jerron Paxton has earned a reputation for transporting audiences back to the 1920’s and making them wish they could stay there. This young musician sings and plays banjo, guitar, piano, fiddle, harmonica, Cajun accordion, and the bones (percussion). Influenced by the likes of Fats Waller and “Blind” Lemon Jefferson, he is possessed of the eerie ability to transform traditional jazz, blues, folk, and country into the here and now. He can mesmerize audiences with his humor and storytelling. Simply put, Paxton is a world-class talent and a uniquely colorful character you just have to come and see.
