Telluride Blues & Brews Festival

Delbert McClinton And Self-Made Men


Friday, 15th at 3:40 pm (Main Stage)

Delbert McClinton is a bluesman who looks on the bright side. His life has held trouble and sorrow, joy and success. Through it all, he’s taken his music to the road, his true love and passion. The Lubbock, Texas native moved with his family to Fort Worth where, as a teen, he cut his teeth in a band that opened for stellar blues artists like Jimmy Reed, Howlin’ Wolf, Gatemouth Brown and Freddie King. Along the road that leads to today, he wrote hit songs, garnered Grammy awards, tussled with the IRS, kept touring, and back in the day, to great mythical acclaim, showed the young Beatle John Lennon, a thing or two on the harmonica. His songs are about love and hope and rising above life’s challenges. Give it up for this true blues legend, Mr. Delbert McClinton.
