Acoustic Blues: Jerron ‘Blind Boy’ Paxton / The Troublemakers
Dundee Rep, Friday 17 November at 8pm
Jerron ‘Blind Boy Paxton’ is singlehandedly keeping the torch for original 1920s and 1930s acoustic blues alive and has been acclaimed as the most sensational newcomer in the blues in many years. He plays banjo, fiddle, guitar, piano and a handful of other instruments and mixes it all in the true songster tradition: ragtime, hokum, old time, French reels, Appalachian mountain music, blues and lots more.
The Troublemakers close the show. Blues’n’Trouble front-men, Tim Elliot and Sandy Tweeddale, together with bassist Lawrie MacMillian play a set of rollicking boogie and blues.
