With an unlimited amount of enthusiasm and potential, the young and tremendously talented blues musician Lucky Peterson will be performing at Terra Blues on Thursday, June 7 at 10:30 p.m.
The show will consist of three 60-minute sets and will feature an opening act by Irving Louis Lattin, who will play an acoustic set from 7:30-10 in the evening.
Lucky Peterson is a soulful performer who played his first gig at age three. As a child prodigy, Lucky was quite the novelty act, and by the time he was five, he had already recorded his first single, produced by blues legend Willie Dixon. After this, his career brought him to perform in the national spotlight with television appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and "What's My Line?"Trained by keyboardists Bill Doggett and Jimmy Smith, Peterson went on to play behind Little Milton, Bobby “Blue” Bland and Kenny Neal. After his return from the “Young Blues Giants” tour of Europe, he later recorded one of his best albums "Black Midnight Sun," in 2003. Following his success, the journey that Lucky took along the way was challenging and he spent the next few years in transition, with personal troubles preventing a proper follow-up to Black Midnight Sun. Yet the blues musician was determined to continue his career, adopting the catch phrase, "You can always turn around." These words took on a special meaning for Peterson, and became the title of his celebrated returning album "You Can Always Turn Around," which is full of uplifting songs about struggles and salvation.
Since then, Lucky has earned his title as a true blues veteran and has played for various audiences all over the world over the last three decades. His authentic dancing music brings about good vibes, and his musicianship has been hailed by critics as "unassailable" and a "combination of sleek-handed dexterity and imagination."But it’s Peterson’s vocal instrument that some might find most arresting. Peterson wraps his voice around an eclectic selection of blues-based material.
Today, he dazzles his fans with his multi-instrumental talents on the keyboard, guitar, bass, drums, and the trumpet. His vocal style is a youthful approach to traditional blues and invites new audiences to explore what makes music such a special and entertaining performance to watch.Cost: $20.00(one ticket allows you to stay the entire evening) To view the performance schedule, click here.
