Double Barrel Blues Band/Mark Cloutier / Press

“ Martial arts exercise helps the musical mind-set of Double Barrel guitarist Mark Cloutier Mark Cloutier is a jack-of-alltrades. By morning he’s a teacher, father and husband, but by nightfall, he just may kick your ass—especially if he hasn’t gotten in his daily practice with his beloved Stevie Ray Vaughan Stratocaster. Cloutier, a co-owner of Blues Lion Records and a guitarist for local rock machine Double Barrel Blues Band, will play at the New York State Blues Festival in Clinton Square on Sunday, July 15, 4:45 p.m. In the local scene, he’s well known thanks to his long-running stint playing at the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que with his former band, Dirty Pool. Nowadays, the Air Force veteran, who turns 47 next month, hasn’t slowed down; he’s just getting started. “No matter what you learn {musically}, there’s always more to be done,” he said while gripping his Stratocaster inside the de facto studio he has in his East Syracuse home. ”
