Fairfield Theatre Co. will hold a performance by Lucky Peterson, a blues guitarist, organist and vocalist, at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 16, at StageOne, 70 Sanford St. Doors open 7 p.m.

Peterson was exposed to music at a young age due in part to his father, who ran The Governor's Inn, a blues club in Buffalo N.Y.

Peterson played his first concert at 3 years old and was working with record producer Willie Dixon by the time he was 5, according to a release. Dixon produced Peterson's first record, and the R&B hit "1-2-3-4." Soon thereafter, Peterson appeared on "The Tonight Show," "The Ed Sullivan Show" and "What's My Line."

As a teenager, Peterson attended Buffalo Academy of Performing Arts before joining in the bands of Etta James and Otis Rush. Peterson has since performed with musicians such as B.B. King and Albert Collins.
