Zappa Tel Aviv - Raul Wallenberg 24, Tel Aviv, 170 NIS
Paxton was born to a black-Jewish family and he plays old blues. By the age of five he was considered a child prodigy when he found a violin and began to play it. As a young boy he amazed audiences when he was playing with blues and country musicians. Mississippi’s elders believe that he is blessed with an ancient soul. To date he specialized in a variety of instruments and styles: banjo and bluegrass, harmonica and blues, guitar and gospel, piano and jazz, and Cajun accordion. Paxton, who lost most of his eye sight as an adult, began playing for a living in house parties and clubs, and now appears at festivals across the United States and all over the world where he plays and sings the blues on guitar, banjo and violin.
