Clark Matthews / Drums

Drummer Clark Matthews began his professional career in New Orleans playing country and cajun music six nights a week on Bourbon Street. In the 1980’s he moved to the Washington, D.C. area where his work playing folk/rock, classic rock, and blues landed him an international touring spot with guitarist Tom Principato. This led to a touring position backing Muddy Waters’ sideman, Bob Margolin and Chicago harmonica master, Carey Bell. Clark has also had the honor of backing world-renowned blues greats such as Dr. John, Pinetop Perkins, Earl King, Louisiana Red, Charlie Musselwhite, Nappy Brown, Sunnyland Slim, and Grady Gaines.

Clark currently resides in Baltimore, MD and is an active member of Mosaic, the Sunday worship ensemble at Central Presbyterian Church in Towson, MD. He can also be regularly heard performing with local area bands including Americana song stylist Janine Wilson, country artist Arty Hill, Nighthawks alumni Pete Kanaras, Automatic Slim, Dean Rosenthal, Flatfoot Sam, and the Natty Beaux. Clark also backs San Francisco based keyboardist, Mitch Woods when he tours in the East.
