Performance to be held at McDavid Studio

"Dave is one of the best guitar players I've ever shared a stage with." - Delbert McClinton

Fort Worth-bred guitarist Dave Millsap returns to our intimate McDavid Studio for a night of fiery blues, soul and R&B.

Millsap spent his early years as a musician in East Texas, playing any gig that would pay. It was in a little club in Nacadogoches that he met Sonny Terry, one of the most famous delta blues singers ever, from the famed Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee.

"I played a few shows as a warm up act for them and Sonny's driver had to leave to go back to Philly to visit his sick mother for a while," Millsap says. "So Sonny asked me if I would drive him around in his white Cadillac until his driver got back. We would sit in his hotel room and Sonny would sing, play his harp and stomp his feet while I tried to play like Brownie. Sonny was great and he would sing all these songs and help me along. He must of thought, `This white boy would never be a blues guitar player.'" Millsap has since shared the stage with Bobby Whitlock, Steve Cropper, Chuck Berry , Bonnie Raitt, Vince Gill, Jerry Williams, Lee Roy Parnell, Albert Collins, Ray Sharpe, Robert Ealey, Bruce Channell, Sam Meyers, Boz Scaggs, Hubert Sumlin, Stephen Bruton , Kim Wilson, Joe Ely and many others.

He spent many years as Delbert McClinton's touring guitarist, which landed him a Grammy nomination in 1989 for Best Contemporary Blues Album, Live In Austin. Millsap has continued his relationship with McClinton, performing on his annual music cruises.

Millsap's first CD, Nothing But Troubles, was done with the help of some very notable guitarist themselves, Ray Sharpe and the late Stephen Bruton.

Stephanie Blythe, Renée Fleming, Susan Graham, Deborah Voigt, Thomas Hampson, and Mariusz Kwiecien are just a few of the major artists to have come through the Met ranks. Another generation of young singers is waiting in the wings to be discovered, and we’ll be among the first to hear them.
