The Clark Family Trio are from Searcy, Arkansas and perform modern Bluegrass, Americana and Gospel favorites, featuring tight three-part "family" harmonies and finger-style and flat picked acoustic guitar. Nine-year-old Sally Ann Clark and her big sister, 15-year-old Sophie, have literally grown up singing with their Mom, Cindy (who also plays upright bass for the group). They are joined by Little Rock superpicker Bill Nesbitt on acoustic guitar. Fiddlin' Banjo Billy Mathews has been playing music for over forty years in the Old Time genre. Still residing in the Ozark Mountains, he is known far and wide across this land for his musical skill and old time fiddling ability.
