Festival! Blues Afternoon: Blind Boy Paxton, The Troublemakers

Blind Boy Paxton carries the torch for traditional acoustic blues 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.
