CAROLINA BEACH - Four-Time Grammy Winner Delbert McClinton to Headline the 26th Annual Pleasure Island Seafood Blues Festival April 18th, 2020 at the Fort Fisher Air Force Recreation Area in Kure Beach.
"Roots music visionary" (Rolling Stone) Delbert McClinton and Self-Made Men + Dana returns to headline the 26th Annual Pleasure Island Seafood Blues & Jazz Festival in support of his swaggering and swingin’ new album, Tall, Dark & Handsome, which recently garnered Delbert his 4th Grammy Award for the 2020 Best Traditional Blues Album!  McClinton will feature 14 new, original songs - all written or co-written by Delbert -  the new music dives deep into the blues, Americana and beyond, bursting with horns, fiddle, accordion, blazing guitar work, back-up singers and McClinton’s charismatic rasp, proving Lyle Lovett’s claim that “if we could all sing like we want to, we’d all sound like Delbert McClinton.” 
Tall, Dark & Handsome features Delbert’s band the Self-Made Men + Dana: Dana Robbins (saxophone), Jack Bruno (drums), Mike Joyce (bass), Bob Britt (guitar), James Pennebaker (guitar), Kevin McKendree (keyboards), Quentin Ware (trumpet), Dennis Wage (keyboards).
McClinton has four Grammy Awards, and his previous three albums have all reached # 1 or #2 on Billboard’s Blues chart.  With over 60 years of recording and touring to his credit, McClinton is a true musical zelig: He toured with the Beatles, backed Bo Diddley and Howlin’ Wolf, helped to inspire The Blues Brothers, and performed everywhere from SNL to Austin City Limits (both multiple times) along the way. His songs have been covered by Buddy Guy, Bonnie Raitt, Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Waylon Jennings, and Wynonna Judd - to name a few.  ​The Legendary Festival conitunes.
