Here for his Bluesfest debut, Blues New Yorker, guitar maestro, Lucky Peterson is set to amaze.
With 18 solo albums to his name, Buffalo born Peterson released his first record at five years old in 1969, discovered by Blues legend Willie Dixon. His debut hit was ‘1-2-3-4’, a James Brown cover of ‘Please-Please-Please’.
The Blues Music Award nominee, vocalist, pianist, guitarist, French horn player & gun on the Hammond organ fuses contemporary Blues, Soul, R&B, Gospel and Rock and Roll, blowing audiences away with his energetic quirky live shows, on a continued rigorous world tour.
Performing on The Tonight Show, The Ed Sullivan Show andWhat’s My Line at the age of five, Lucky is the epitome of a seasoned musician and performer, and the guitar chops to boot.
Best known for his hit records Lucky Strikes! and Triple Play, he is a peer of legends, having performed with Mavis Staples, Etta James, Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland & Little Milton, and has headlined Buddy Guy's Legends, Chicago, famously known as the premier Blues club in the world.
Bluesfest is in for a real treat - the Blues deal - with this talented and enduring legend in a rare trip down under!
“A master of the guitar.” – The New Yorker
“deliciously crafted blues on the keys…spunk and an energy that drew the crowd in.” – North West Music Scene
“No sooner does he jump on the stage than he's wailing away, singing his heart out, and jiving down with a hot-to-trot backing band…but that ain't all, 'cause the guy knows how to wrangle a guitar as well, as any self-respecting blues connoisseur is more than aware, and ain't afraid to be the showman to boot, jumping into the crowd, sitting among 'em, and playing his brains out.” – Acoustic Music
