Blind Boy Paxton to open for Kitty, Daisy and Lewis in Auckland

Kitty Daisy & Lewis announce Blind Boy Paxton as support act for Auckland show

US bluesman Blind Boy Paxton will open for Kitty Daisy & Lewis in Auckland on February 11 at the Powerstation.

The sibling act from the UK will are touring New Zealand in February with shows at Black Barn in Hawkes Bay on February 9San Fran in Wellington on February 10 and thePowerstation in Auckland on February 11.

Blind Boy Paxton is the living embodiment of the true blues in the 21st Century, but plays it all in the true songster tradition – ragtime, hokum, old time, French reels, Appalachian mountain music, blues and lots more.

The multi-instrumentalist has earned a reputation for transporting audiences back to the 1920s and making them wish they could stay. He sings and plays the banjo, guitar, piano, fiddle, harmonica, Cajun accordion, and the bones. He has the eerie ability to transform traditional jazz, blues, folk, and country into the here and now, and make it real.

It makes for the perfect accompaniment to Kitty Daisy & Lewis who are known for their authentic take on vintage country and first-generation rhythm and blues. Not to mention their energetic live performances and tight musicianship.

The trio is touring their fourth album SUPERSCOPE – a vibrant and lively record, which oozes old school blues, rock ’n’ roll and soul. They will be joined on stage by their fatherGraeme Durham, new bassist Popcorn, and legendary octogenarian trumpeter Eddie ‘Tan Tan’ Thornton . 

Tickets from www.blackbarn.com (Hawkes Bay), www.undertheradar.co.nz(Wellington) and www.aaaticketing.com (Auckland)
