Saturday To-Do: Tinsley Ellis

Posted By on Fri, Aug 13, 2010 at 2:52 AM


9 p.m., Denton's Trotline. $15

In a world of music consistently divvied up into self-inflicted genres, Tinsley Ellis and his guitar manage to straddle the lines between thundering Texas blues, chunky Delta stomp and the soul fretting of B.B. King. It's that type of amplified dexterity that's kept Ellis on the road and in the studio going on three decades now, recording with legendary producer Tom Dowd (John Coltrane, Otis Redding) and playing more than 150 shows a year all over the county. With that kind of practice, you can feel safe expecting to see a master of his craft this week when his itinerary brings him to the back porch of Denton's Trotline in Benton.
