American blues extraordinaire Blind Boy Paxton is currently in the country for an eight-date visit, making his triumphant return to New Zealand after a string of sold-out shows here two years ago. The Watts-born musician joins the show to discuss his tour -- which included a gig in Wellington last night -- and the inspiration behind the closing track from his debut album, Recorded Music For Your Entertainment -- Trying to Make One Hundred.
