DELBERT MCCLINTON

Tuesday August 4 - 8:00pm
 
“Delbert's an erudite, urbane sophisticate, wrapped up as a roadhouse singer. There’s nothing contradictory in his character – he’s a real Texan. Neither the intellectual nor the roadhouse singer is a put-on. They come in equal parts. He's one of a kind, he’s amazing. He defies the categories and slips right through.” -Don Was
 
“Decades before Americana became an umbrella term to describe hard-to-categorize roots music, Delbert McClinton was tearing up roadhouses with his own "what-do-you-call-that?" blend of rhythm-and-blues, rock, soul, and honky-tonk.” –The Philadelphia Inquirer
 
 
The venerable Delbert McClinton is a legend among Texas roots music aficionados, not only for his amazing longevity, but for his ability to combine country, blues, soul, and rock & roll as if there were no distinctions between any of them in the best time-honored Texas tradition. A formidable harmonica player long before he recorded as a singer, McClinton's career began in the late '50s, yet it took him nearly two decades to evolve into a bona fide solo artist. A critics' darling and favorite of his peers, McClinton has won two Grammy awards to date and countless fans across the globe.
