The Mississippi Valley Blues Society presents, for your holiday pleasure, a “powerhouse” of a blues show featuring blues veteran and multi-instrumentalist Lucky Peterson, his wife Tamara on vocals and, tearing it up on guitar, the “Canadian Face-Melter” Shawn Kellerman. Showtime is 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 19th at Rascal’s, 1414 15th Street in Moline. Admission is a very reasonable $10 ($7 for MVBS members) for a show of this caliber.

Lucky Peterson, who last played here at our 1993 Blues Fest (the “Airport Fest”), was a child prodigy who played his first gig at age 3, recorded his first single—produced by the legendary Willie Dixon—at age 5 and went on to play The Ed Sullivan Show and The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson by the time he was age 6. He’s recorded for major labels such as Verve, Evidence and Alligator and, in 2010, his album You Can Always Turn Around won a Blues Music Award for Best Blues Album of 2010. He plays guitar, keyboards, bass, drums and trumpet—but for this show, we suspect Mr. Kellerman will be handling most of the guitar fireworks.

Shawn Kellerman has played the Quad City area several times, including our Blues Festival in 2010, and is known for his thrashing blues-rock style as well as his mastery of straight-ahead blues.

You won’t want to miss this show!  Have your nearest loved one give you an early Christmas present and get tickets for Lucky Peterson with Shawn Kellerman.

Steve Brundies, President
