"A master of the guitar” – The New Yorker
“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
Blues New Yorker and guitar maestro, Lucky Peterson, is set to amaze Australian audiences when he returns for the first time in decades.
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’.
