Carolina Beach, NC (PressExposure) September 07, 2009 -- The Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce will once again hold their world famous Seafood, Blues and Jazz Festival on Saturday and Sunday, October 10th and 11th at the Fort Fisher Military Recreation Area in Kure Beach, NC. This world famous two-day Festival, in its 16th year, features two sound stages where National and International Musicians will play the best in American Blues, Jazz and World music. Guests will also enjoy great seafood, and regional fine artists, designers, jewel smiths & craftsmen displaying their goods. There will also be a âKidz Fantasy Zoneâ for children to play.
Headlining the Festival this year is quintessential Texas blues rocker Delbert McClinton. McClinton has known few genre boundaries during his more than five decade-spanning career with threads of country, rock, pop soul, folk and jazz abounding. One of his notable credits is the creation of the harmonica riff lead on Bruce Channelâs 1962 #1 hit âHey! Baby,â recorded in his native Ft. Worth. The riff provided the inspiration for the similar one heard on the Beatlesâ âLove Me Do,â as played by John Lennon under the tutelage of Delbert McClinton.
