Lucky Peterson is the most dangerous triple threat working in blues today. He has gained a reputation as one of the most preeminent performers of the modern era. A searing lead guitarist, fantastic organist, and first-rate vocalist, Lucky’s many talents are truly mind-boggling.
Peterson is prime-rich in roots but performs in the present. But that’s just what you’d expect from an artist with Peterson’s resumé; his career began when he was just a child. Growing up in Buffalo, NY, Peterson was exposed to music his whole life; his father owned The Governor’s Inn, one of the area’s most renowned blues clubs. Willie Dixon produced Peterson’s first record when he was but five years old, the RNB hit, “1-2-3-4.” This resulted in television appearances for the blues prodigy on such shows as The Tonight Show, The Ed Sullivan Show, and What’s My Line. The rest, as they say, is history.
Support comes from Bristol based Elles Bailey, performing rootsy blues, country, and soulful rock with a contemporary edge. Blessed with a distinctive ‘smoky vocal’ style, she has played extensively throughout the UK and Europe, recently supporting soulstress Jo Harman.
