"Roots music visionary" (Rolling Stone Magazine) Delbert McClinton returns with a swaggering and swingin' set of music including hits "Giving it Up for Your Love" and "Have a Little Faith in Me" and new songs with a humorous age-appropriate twist: "Mr. Smith" and "Let's Get Down Like We Used To." His evocative interview includes stories of his opening for and learning from blues greats Sonny Boy Williamson and Jimmy Reed.

Episode Duration: 57 minutes and 37 seconds

About The Kate:

THE KATE is a new national music series with artistic cred and a bit of edge, infused with the essence of the unabashed, spirited Katharine Hepburn.

The headline-heavy first season features artists who follow the Hepburnian philosophy that "If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.

" Ann Wilson, Rickie Lee Jones, and former Saturday Night Livestar Ana Gasteyer, are all breaking new ground in their already-established careers during THE KATE performances.

These artists are iconoclasts, and their performances capture a particular feeling, an artistic vibe located just outside of the mainstream: Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Ann Wilson pushes her Heart aside and sings the blues; Rickie Lee Jones speaks openly about growing older in the music world; Gasteyer takes a turn as a sassy singer, weaving in comedic moments throughout.

The intimacy of the venue means that THE KATE performers have a risky closeness to their material--and their audience.

British song interpreter Barb Jungr and Broadway star Jarrod Spector round out the season, with the final artist to be announced soon.

Insightful interviews with the performers open each episode, taped live at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, an intimate 250-seat venue in Old Saybrook, Connecticut.
