The Peterson family celebrates what would have been the 101st birthday of their matriarch, Jeanne Arland Peterson. They will be playing songs from her trailblazing career, and more.
The Peterson Family is often referred to as "Minnesota's First Family of Music" and have played with Dizzy Gillespie, Bob Dylan, Steve Miller, Prince, Kenny Loggin's, Michael Bolton and countless others. Join them for this special event in celebration of Jeanne Arland Peterson's 101st birthday! Considered the grande dame of Minnesota jazz, not only did Jeanne raised five children who are professional musicians, but she amassed Minnesota Music Hall of Fame-worthy credits and had 22 years in WCCO Radio's house band, led by her late husband, Willie. Jeanne also has to her credit performances with jazz stars George Benson, Sonny Stitt and Roy Eldridge, and entertainers Bob Hope, Perry Como and Red Skelton.
