Jontavious Willis & "Blind Boy" Paxtion
Every generation or so a young bluesman bursts onto the scene. Someone who sends a jolt through blues lovers, someone who has mastered the craft but also has the blues deep down in his soul. At the age of 22, bluesman Jontavious Willis may be the one. “That’s my Wonderboy, the Wunderkind” says living legend, Taj Mahal. Returning to APT after a stand out performance in the 2018-19 season, Willis will be joined by Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton. Paxton is the Artistic Director of the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival & Workshop. He was featured on CNN’s Great Big Story & in the multi-award winning documentary “American Epic” produced by Robert Redford. He’s a world-class talent and a uniquely colorful character that has been on the cover of Living Blues Magazine and the Village Voice.
