DELBERT McCLINTON

Delbert McClinton grew up singing and playing in the gutbucket clubs of Fort Worth, and in a sense he's never left. He still has a voice that will roar through the noise of a barroom or through any kind of mental clutter you might bring to one of his concerts. Delbert and his band backed the absolute royalty of deep blues as they came through town—Jimmy Reed, Sonny Boy Williamson, Bobby "Blue" Bland, and the incomparable Howlin' Wolf—and all that he saw and heard, he absorbed and passes along in his own music. (He gave John Lennon some pointers on the harmonica, to boot.) Delbert hasn't slowed down a bit, and his December shows are an Ark tradition. So don't delay on getting tickets! Delbert's latest release, "Prick of the Litter," which blends his signature rhythm and blues sound with a newer jazz influence inspired by Johnny Mercer, Nat King Cole, and other legendary crooners.

Tickets: $50
