Coming here: Delbert McClinton, May 5 at Walton Arts Center

Delbert McClinton


Three time Grammy-winning artist Delbert McClinton is coming to Fayetteville this spring.

The singer-songwriter is set to return to the Walton Arts Center for a show on Wednesday, May 6.

McClinton’s career in the music industry spans over five decades. Since he began as a frontman for a 1960s bar band called The Straightjackets, McClinton honed his craft backing blues greats such as Howlin’ Wolf, Lightnin’ Hopkins and Jimmy Reed.

McClinton won his first Grammy in 1991 for a duet with Bonnie Raitt titled “Good Man, Good Woman.” He carried his success into the 2000s by winning two Grammys in the Best Contemporary Blues Album category – for his LPs Nothing Personal in 2001 and The Cost of Living in 2006.

The show will feature some of McClinton’s classic hits, and plenty of new songs from his more recent albums.

Tickets range from $25 to $75, and are on sale through the Walton Arts Center box office at 479-443-5600 or at
