Album Notes
Clarke Wright has been playing music in some form or another since the early 1970s. He worked with David Ferretta and the Sunday River Boys in Denver in the mid ‘70s and appears on their Biscuit City recording “You Can Dress ‘Em Up, But You Can’t Take ‘Em Out.” If you ask Clarke how long he has been playing fiddle he will tell you, “Long enough to where you would say, ‘Wow, shouldn’t you be better than that?’” He has spent over 30 years with The Hollywood Rodeo Band and later their pared down acoustic version, High, Wide and Handsome. HRB/HWH recorded 7 albums and has toured extensively, visiting over 40 nations and territories, entertaining our nation’s Armed Forces.
He picked up the fiddle ‘sometime back in the 20th Century’, and is self taught. “When I hit a wrong note or clam-out a break I just blame my teacher,” Clarke says.
Originally from Minnesota and the son of an Episcopal Priest, Clarke has evolved into “A Heckuva Fiddle Player” (AHFP). Clarke plays mostly fiddle and guitar, but also mandolin and bass sometimes.
He plays 4 and 5-string fiddles and gets his inspiration and is influenced by
Byron Berline, Bob Wills, Tommy Jackson, Leon Rausch, Tom Morrell and the Time Warp Tophands, Johnny Gimble, Vassar Clements, Chet Atkins, Randy “Snuffy” Elmore...
