Muddy Bottom Blues
Program #144 (June 22 at 8:00pm and June 23 at 3:00pm)
Clarence Bucaro originally hails from outside Cleveland, Ohio.
When he was just twenty years old, he thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail. On this hike, carrying a Martin backpacker, he wrote his entire first album “Sweet Corn,” which caught the attention of an Americana record label in Portland, Oregon. Soon Clarence found himself on tour with The Blind Boys of Alabama and Mavis Staples playing to sold out theaters across America.
Fast forward fifteen years, eleven albums and hundreds of shows later, Bucaro continues to transport listeners with his thoughtful lyrics and carefully crafted melodies.
Since then, he has lived in New York, Los Angeles, New Orleans and Nashville building his career. He has shared the stage with greats such as Rodney Crowell, Aaron Neville, Tony Joe White, Los Lobos, Richard Thompson and Marc Cohn.
His latest, Passionate Kind recorded at The Loft in Chicago co-produced by Tom Schick (Wilco, Ryan Adams) features sensational artists Chris Farney (Josh Radin) on drums, Scott Ligon (NRBQ, Mavis Staples) on piano and bass and Doug Pettibone (Marianne Faithful, Lucinda Williams) on guitar.
