After leaving Oklahoma for 10 years to travel the world, Clint Hardesty returned to Norman and began putting down his musical roots. He appeared seemingly out of nowhere as an integral part of bands such as Caleb McGee and the Underdogs, Wess McMichael and the Ravens, and then to the surprise of many began performing solo shows.
Mr. Hardesty specializes in Delta and Mississippi Hill Country blues in the styles of Son House, Robert Johnson, Blind Willie Johnson, Mississippi Fred McDowell to mention a few. You will not find a show or a performer like this anywhere else in the metro area. Interspersed between white hot slide licks and authentic Delta rhythms, Mr. Hardesty also includes brief snippets of historical background on the songs of these legends and the foundation they have laid for virtually all contemporary American music.
