Tickets are now available for the Peterson Family benefit concert for the Edina Historical Society.
Known as "Minnesota's first family of music," three generations of Petersons are led by matriarch Jeanne Arland Peterson, who has been named to both the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame and the Broadcasting Museum Hall of Fame. Several of her children and grandchildren live in Edina, including Paul Peterson, who was discovered by the legendary artist Prince at age 17, and Patty Peterson, who has seven Minnesota Music Awards to her credit. Other siblings include Billy Peterson, who has toured with the Steve Miller Band for 23 years, and acclaimed jazz vocalist Linda Peterson, who performs throughout the country and abroad. The Petersons grew up in Richfield.
