Mr. Big 

Big George Brock has seen many a New Year come and go. The 73-year-old bluesman was recently nominated for a prestigious Blues Music Award, the genre's equivalent of the Grammy. Brock grew up in the Mattson/Clarksdale, Mississippi, area and to celebrate his nomination he's putting on a New Year's Eve performance at the Delta Blues Room in downtown Clarksdale. Brock is know for his flashy suits and entertaining stage antics, but his energetic Delta-Went-North blues style isn't just show. The Arkansas Leader says, "Brock is about as good a harmonica player as any of the blues greats, and he knew and played with most of them."

Big George Brock at the Delta Blues Room, 220 Sunflower Avenue in Clarksdale, MS, (662-625-5992), Saturday, December 31st, $8 in advance, $10 at the door
