This Americana Artist Helped Define the Genre, and Now, He Comes to Durham
There are two kinds of people in the world: those who love Delbert McClinton and those who have not heard him yet. Delbert is always working on that second group. Witness the Grammy Award-winning artist live in concert when he performs at Rhythms Live Music Hall this Thursday, December 13th.
Delbert McClinton has been a leading Americana artist since before the genre was established. He has won two Grammy awards in the blues category for Best Contemporary Blues Album; and one in the rock category (Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group), with Bonnie Raitt for “Good Man, Good Woman”.
McClinton is at the top of his game with his 19th studio album, Prick Of The Litter (Hot Shot Records/Thirty Tigers). The new offering captures the balance of soulful energy and restraint that the legendary performer has been delivering in his live performances for decades all over the world. On Prick of the Litter, Delbert incorporates a variety of styles, and as always, just enough to keep him comfortably outside the traditional marketing categories.
Prick of the Litter blends Delbert's signature rhythm and blues sound with a newer jazz-influence inspired by Johnny Mercer, Nat King Cole and other legendary crooners. He includes some upbeat traditional blues ("Don't Do It") with a romantic take on Tony Bennett's San Francisco ("San Miguel") while "Skip Chaser" paints a vivid picture of the perils of the profession.
McClinton will perform at 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 13th. Tickets may be purchased online and start at 45 dollars. For more information, visit www.rhythmslivenc.com.
