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 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 known for his flashy suits and entertaining stage antics, but his energetic Delta-Went-North blues style isn't just show. As 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."
