    Wed., Sept. 19, 8:30 p.m.

    In 2016, Gaelynn Lea conquered the second edition of NPR Music’s open-call Tiny Desk Contest. The singer-songwriter’s haunted, eerily beautiful looped-violin music beat out more than 6,000 entrants. Since winning the competition, she’s released two records: a Christmas collection and the brand-new pan-Americana album Learning How to Stay. In addition to playing music, Lea gives talks relating to disability awareness and representation in the arts. She was born with osteogenesis imperfecta, a rare genetic disorder that primarily affects the skeletal system and has led her to play her violin upright, like a cello. Lea takes the stage on Wednesday, September 19, at the Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington. at Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington (map). $10.

    Sat., Sept. 22, 8 p.m.

    “All I do is play music; I’m too lazy to work,” Jerron Paxton, aka Blind Boy Paxton, once told website the Country Blues. That may be true, but Paxton’s laziness doesn’t affect his proficiency on all manner of old-time instruments. Be it banjo, guitar, fiddle or accordion, the bluesman is a certified pro. His extensive catalog of early 20th-century tunes touches on myriad Americana styles, but primarily Delta blues and roots. And his stage name isn’t just a folksy moniker. Though he does retain some sight, Paxton is legally blind. Catch him on Saturday, September 22, at the Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington. at Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington (map). $22/25.
