Fiddleride (2011)

Clarke Wright's first solo CD, “Fiddleride” was made with help from his hugely talented friends. It has Western Swing and Bluegrass standards as well as some originals. He picks guitar on a couple of songs too.


“What a Fiddleride it has been creating this CD. Selecting the 14 songs was hard to narrow down, but there was no debate about who I wanted to pick with on them.”
