Lucky Peterson


We're working on it! Meanwhile, check out the upcoming Scottish Jazz Weekend programme here!

Lucky Peterson image

First time in Edinburgh for one of the giants of contemporary blues. Singer, organist, and keyboard virtuoso fronts one of the classiest bands on the world scene, playing all the major Festivals. It’s the sheer gravitas that he carries and the joie de vivre that he exudes that place Peterson apart. One of the most authentic custodians of the blues; he knows its pioneers and its oral tradition, respects its history and heritage and knows how to play and sing like nobodyelse – always tasteful and musicianly, but always burning with emotion.
