Blow My Blues Away


Closing out SMF 2012 with a unique two-night SMF doublebill, Lucky Peterson brings his own band this time around. Discovered by blues giant Willie Dixon when he was three years old, Lucky released his first record at five and soon after appeared on The Tonight Show before going on to play behind Little Milton, Bobby “Blue” Bland and Kenny Neal. The New Yorker dubbed him “a master of the guitar, organ and microphone,” and whether playing B-3, singing soul classics or delivering heart-wrenching country blues on slide guitar, he is the consummate showman. The Joe Krown Trio features three of the Crescent City’s most revered musicians. Hammond B-3 specialist Joe Krown spent a decade and a half as keyboardist for Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown. Walter “Wolfman” Washington’s searing guitar work and soulful vocals have helped define the unique New Orleans musical hybrid of R&B, funk and the blues since the 1970s. Drummer Russell Batiste, Jr. played for years with the Funky Meters, and recently collaborated with Paige McConnell (Phish) and Oteil Burbridge (Allman Brothers) in the acclaimed funk/jam trio Vida Blue.
