Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton may be one of the greatest multi-instrumentalists whom you have not heard of. . . yet. Only in his 20s, Paxton has an eerie ability to transform traditional blues, folk, country, and jazz into the here and now. He additionally mesmerizes audiences with his humor and storytelling. A world-class talent and a uniquely colorful character, he is “virtually the only music-maker of his generation—playing guitar, banjo, piano, and violin, among other instruments—to fully assimilate the blues idiom of the 1920s and ‘30s” (Wall Street Journal).

Hailing from Northern Estonia, fiddler/singer Maarja Nuut combines traditional dance tunes, songs, and stories with live electronics to create a space where minimalism and experimental music meet the village musical traditions of prewar Europe. Having received the 2015 Tallinn Music Week Prize and showcased at the 2014 Womex festival, Nuut is now bringing her unique renditions of Baltic folk music to her San Diego debut at ArtPower.

“Estonian fiddler Maarja Nuut takes her country’s folkloric tunes on a stunning personal journey. Her voice’s unusual pitches and repetitive phrasing form gradually shifting soundscapes.”—Chicago Tribune
