Jerron Blind Boy Paxton is the definition of charisma: a multi-instrumentalist with an encyclopaedic knowledge of pre-War blues. He regales audiences with hilarious tales while blowing them away with his virtuosity and deep authenticity on banjo, guitar, harmonica, piano, violin and bones. Yes, bones... He has been feted globally as the saviour of the acoustic blues. His performance on the award-winning American Epic TV series pretty much stole the show. Don't miss.
Kyla Brox recently won the European Blues Challenge for the UK. An extraordinary presence, with a soul-blues voice unequalled on these islands. Check out recent mistresspiece, Pain & Glory.
