December 29, 2016

jalcJazz at Lincoln Center’s 2016-17 season continues exploring the blues tradition with Lucky Peterson: Roots of Acoustic Blues on January 20-21 in The Appel Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall, located on Broadway at 60th Street, New York, New York. 

 In “Roots of Acoustic Blues”, Peterson will explore the early styles at the core of the blues, exemplifying the music’s honest optimism in the face of hardship.

Peterson was discovered in his father’s club in Buffalo, New York by Willie Dixon, who produced Peterson’s first single at age five. His talent was showcased on The Tonight Show and The Ed Sullivan Show shortly after and Peterson has won fans around the world ever since. His career includes working alongside blues greats such as Otis Rush, James Cotton, and Etta James. His 2014 album, named The Son of a Bluesman, shares his lifelong journey and even includes a collaboration with his wife, making blues truly a family affair.
