Friday October 13 is a lucky day for Next Stage, as we present the versatile, vastly talented Blind Boy Paxton. A young entertainer in his twenties, Paxton is a virtuoso on guitar, banjo, piano and fiddle, and he fills his shows with classic vaudeville humor and a magician’s sleight of hand. Watching him, one is brought back to a bygone era of dusty back roads, hobos and freight train hopping. But mere words do not do him justice. Here is the first of a series of videos of Paxton that will be posted on this website every Monday. Stay tuned.
