Lucky Peterson

When: Tue., May 20, 7 p.m. and Wed., May 21, 7 p.m. 2014

A blues career that started at age three was bound to have its ups and downs. But Lucky Peterson has transcended child prodigy status, maturing into a triple-threat on organ, guitar and vocals. With more than 17 recorded albums under his belt, the man has played a fair share of tunes, sharing the stage with the likes of Etta James, Otis Rush and B.B. King. The 2003 release Black Midnight Sun is one of Peterson’s notable albums, showing a dark region of blues with his weeping Hammond B-3 on “Is It Because I’m Black,” and the near-psychedelic “Smokestack Lightning. Lucky’s post-drug addiction album You Can Always Turn Around is a collaboration with Woodstock-era musicians, throwing back to a more traditional blues style, featuring scuffling resonator guitar-playing that won him the Grand Prix du Disque award for Best Blues Album in 2010. Don’t miss Lucky’s latest work Son Of A Bluesman, due out in June. (Gonzalez)
