A RISING star of vintage blues is bound for the newly restored historic Courtroom at Middlesbrough Town Hall.

Jerron Blind Boy Paxton’s gig on Monday, November 12 is the latest in the venue’s Courtroom Sessions series of Americana acts in partnership with The Jumpin’ Hot Club.

The multi-instrumentalist was featured on CNN’s Great Big Story and appeared in the multi award-winning music documentary American Epic produced by Robert Redford, Jack White and T Bone Burnett.

Lorna Fulton, head of programmes at Middlesbrough Town Hall, said: “We are delighted Jerron Blind Boy Paxton has been announced as the second in our Courtroom Sessions series following Kim Richey and Ben Glover on Thursday, November 8. I’d urge any blues fan to get their tickets early for this one as it promises to be a great night with this rising star."
