Aculturated in the rich desert heritage of northern Mexico (Sonora and Chihuahua), New Mexico, and Arizona, the native sounds of Mariachi, norteno, and Marty Robbins echo in George McClure's music, as well as Texas swing and native American traditions. George learned Western swing in Arizona and New Mexico bars and clubs while playing banjo and bass for a living. "We couldn't get off the stage without playing a few Bob Wills and Texas swing numbers", George says. "And we had a guy in our band who grooved on all the swing. The complex chords and structures thrilled me." A little later in Carolina an old black bluesman showed George a few chords and positions on guitar and he figured everything out from that.

McClure is also a poet in his spare time! Visit George on george mcclure.net (his official sanctioned dossier.)



George went pro here (Tucson AZ) in 1979. He wrote a lot of music here, including "Mass Grass", neo-classical polyphonic works, and he transcribed Vivaldi's Violin Concerto in Am for string ensemble. He lived here 1978-1979.
