Lucky Peterson Sat. April 2nd at Big Cities Lounge
Lucky Peterson plays a unique and interesting blend of contemporary blues, fusing soul, R&B, gospel and rock and roll into his blues. He plays both guitar and keyboards. Music journalist Tony Russell, in his book The Blues - From Robert Johnson to Robert Cray has said, "he may be the only blues musician to have had national television exposure in short pants." He was discovered by blues legend Willie Dixon when he was three years old, released his first record at five and soon after appeared on The Tonight Show.
His new album "You Can Always Turn Around" on the Dreyfus label has received rave reviews and has gotten extensive national airplay on blues radio programs. This is a show blues, soul and gospel fans will ot want to miss- Lucky plays with his heart and soul bared. Come out and hear this great musician and his band and help support keeping the blues alive!
