Personalities | Delbert McClinton | Seventies | Jazz & Blues

(Harmonica, vocals, b. 1940)

Delbert McClinton gigged around Fort Worth as a young man, playing with local acts like the Rondells. He moved to Los Angeles in the early 1970s, playing and writing songs with Glen Clark, but returned to Texas in 1975. As both a performer and songwriter, McClinton smoothly crosses the dividing lines between blues, country, rock and soul. He has enjoyed important collaborations with Roy Buchanan, Bonnie Raitt, Tanya Tucker, B.B. King, Vince Gill and others.
