Revered Roots Musician Delbert McClinton and His Band to Perform

at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on September 25, 2015

Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.  — The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall presents An Evening with Delbert McClinton and His Band on Friday, September 25, 2015. Tickets for An Evening with Delbert McClinton and His Band will go on sale to the general public this Friday, April 24 at 10 a.m.

Delbert McClinton, Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, Florida, September 25, 2015, concert infoDelbert McClinton is a legend among Texas roots music aficionados and an international star in the realms of blues and traditional country music, cross-pollinating the genres into his own unique sound. Born in Lubbock, Texas on November 4, 1940, McClinton grew up in Fort Worth. Discovering the blues in his teenage years, he quickly became an accomplished harmonica player and found plenty of work on the local club scene, where musicians often made their living by playing completely different styles of music on different nights of the week. While McClinton’s career began in the late ‘50s, it was nearly two decades before McClinton evolved into a bona fide solo artist. Since 1980, when his sixth solo album The Jealous Kind sparked the top 10 hit “Givin’ It Up for Your Love,” McClinton has remained one of the most respected figures in American Roots music. In 1992, the man who gave John Lennon his first harmonica lesson (when McClinton toured England in the early ‘60s as part of Bruce Channel’s band) won his first GRAMMY Award for the duet “Good Man, Good Woman” with Bonnie Raitt. That was followed by a second win in 2003 for Nothing Personal in the Best Contemporary Blues Album Category. In 2006, McClinton won a third GRAMMY for his Cost of Living album. McClinton’s songs have also been recorded by a who’s who of country music royalty including Vince Gill, Wynonna Judd, Garth Brooks, Emmylou Harris, Martina McBride and more.

Over the decades, McClinton’s blend of soaring blue-eyed soul singing sprinkled with red Texas dust, the emotional wealth of his songwriting and his command of virtuoso supporting ensembles has built McClinton a wildly avid fan base in the United States and Europe. “I’ve got a good deal in life,” McClinton says. “I’ve got a lot of good people for fans who support me, although I’ve won over each of them one-by-one on the road.”

Tickets for this seated show go on sale this Friday, April 24 at 10 a.m. Tickets will be available for purchase at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall and St. Augustine Amphitheatre Box Offices, ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets and by phone at (800) 745-3000.
