FRIDAY 5/16: Thelma & Erika Peterson Return to ESO Live

ESO Live! with Thelma & Erika Peterson, 8 p.m. Friday, May 16 — “Originals & Influences.”

Come spend an evening with Thelma and Erika Peterson, the Eastern Shore’s mother and daughter singing duo, as they perform original songs interwoven with music from the songwriters who most influenced their music, including Emmylou Harris, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Mary Chapin Carpenter and more.

They return to ESO’s stage for the first time in 3 years! The two began singing together when Erika was five, and enjoy performing together whether on stage or in the living room. Thelma’s original songs have done well in both regional and national songwriting competitions. Thelma says, “Music is in my bones, just as deeply as painting, and both bring great joy to my life.”

Doors open 7:30, Beer/wine/refreshments available for purchase. ESO Arts Center, 15293 King St., Belle Haven. For reservations: 757-442-3226 or go to
