Clarke Wright is an accomplished fiddler, who lives in Northern Colorado. He plays with many bands and is known as a go-to-guy in the fiddling world. Whether it’s four or five string, Bluegrass, Western Swing, Country, Jazz and more, his bow is rosined and ready.
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.
