Glen Delpit


Fresno’s own Glen Delpit is about as iconoclastic as they come.  This original artist is multitalented, gifted in so many ways, and truly prolific in his output.  One can find his music, covering a vast stretch of genres.  One can find his videography.  Or his poetry; or his paintings; or his generous spirit that we so often see at local events promoting one good cause or another.

From his website:  “Born in New Orleans, living in California, and recently named Musician of the Year in Fresno Magazine's online poll, Glen Delpit has been mining the roots of American Music with his bluesy and folk oriented slide guitar style for more than 35 years. His vocals have been characterized from Deep Delta to Van Morrison and his original songs have been described as literate and poetic and can take their place with the finest American songwriters. He has opened for many American Music legends such as John Lee Hooker, Bo Diddley, Leon Russell, Brownie McGhee, Pinetop Perkins, Katie Webster and many, many others. He has also shared the stage with many prominent American Roots artists like Dave Alvin, Jackie Greene, Peter Case, Jonahan Richman and the British legend Eric Burdon.”            Find Glen on Facebook!
