Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton Live

Sitting by the Central Park Reflecting Pool, Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton, 24, multi-instrumentalist and master of American acoustic music, performed the traditional folk song "Mole in the Ground." Read about this remarkable musician in the Acoustic, Folk and Country Blues web site, and listen to more of his music on the St. James Infirmary music show, hosted by my good friend Michael Mand.

"Blind Boy" Paxton is indeed remarkable. Close your eyes and you'd believe your are listening to a direct descendant of Blind Willie McTell. And, in a figurative way, you are. I have my people looking into getting Paxton on as a guest on SJI. (Unfortunately, I am "my people", so I have to do it all myself.

According to the article I linked, Paxton is a local musician: he lives in Queens. That should make it easier. Would really like to hear you interview him on St. James Infirmary. So get your people on it; what are you paying them for?
