Clark Family Trio featuring Bill Nesbitt

Clark Family Trio featuring Bill Nesbitt

The Clark Family Trio, accompanied by guitarist Bill Nesbitt, performs modern Bluegrass, Americana, and Gospel favorites that feature three-part “family” harmonies and finger style and flat picked acoustic guitar playing. Twelve-year-old Sallie Ann Clark and her big sister Sophie have literally grown up singing with their mom Cindy Clark, who also plays upright bass for the group. All three ladies sing lead at different times, as well as adding different harmony parts, according to the need of the moment. In 2012, the trio teamed up with guitarist Bill Nesbitt, who in addition to fingerpicking and flatpicking the guitar also plays multiple instruments on their studio recordings. They have two CDs to their credit, with a third in the works (as of February 2015). Together they have delighted audiences with their talent and presentation in live shows around Arkansas and beyond, including

• The Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, Ark.

• “The Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour," a nationally syndicated
radio and television program based in Lexington, Kentucky

• The Acansa Arts Festival in Little Rock

• The Original Ozark Folk Festival in Eureka Springs
