From our Collection: ‘Brown & Polar’ with Blind Boy Jerron Paxton & Bennett Konesni

July 5, 2021 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Tinder Hearth
1452 Coastal Road
Brooksville, Maine

Paxton’s sound is influenced by the likes of Fats Waller and “Blind” Lemon Jefferson.  He is also one of the only music makers of his generation to fully assimilate the blues idiom of the 1920s and ‘30s. 

Konesni is at the vanguard of the sea shanty revival, leading The Mighty Worksong Community Chorus with his powerful voice; he tours internationally as a cultural ambassador,  sharing the rich musical traditions of Maine’s lumberjacks, sailors and farmers.
