Uncle Don Clark's interest in music started early. At age 10 he started learning how to play acoustic guitar. He watched others as he taught himself. About six months later he wrote his first folk song even though he didn't know what folk music was.
The next 37 1/2 years Uncle Don worked perfecting a style. He has yet to determine what that really is. Others have placed him in the Blues, Americana, Folk and Storyteller categories. His solo performances consist of 90-99% originals.
Over time, his music became more eclectic. Music was changing so much and there was such diversity. He gleaned what he thought to be the best of each style and still writes and plays that way today.
Uncle Don has been in 4 different bands while performing solo acoustic in between. One of them, his own band, The Don Clark Trio. There were as few as two and as many as seven members in the "trio".
He is currently a member of The Secret Commonwealth, an eclectic Celtic Folk/Rock band. He became friends with the founding trio of The Secret Commonwealth in the early 90s. He sat in with the group from time to time but did not become a member of "TSC" until around 2004. He continues to perform solo shows when not involved in a band project.
