I've been busy since the 1960s (I'm that old). And I like to think I've become established on the international touring scene, playing regularly in Europe, Asia and the USA. In June 2018 we're booked to play at Sweden Rock Festival, one of Europe's largest rock festivals, headlined this year by Iron Maiden and Ozzy Osbourne. Kindly praised for my "straight from the wood" guitar sound, I was also the winner of the 2014 Artist Aloud Awards "Best International Act" of which I'm very proud.
I began my career with KILLING FLOOR part of the British blues boom of the late 60s. The band backed Texas blues guitar star Freddie King and toured with the great Howlin' Wolf. Good times. In the 70s I co-formed SALT, who opened for Muddy Waters in London and played at the Reading Festival in 1977. THE MICK CLARKE BAND was established in the early 80s and has appeared on numerous festivals with artists such as Rory Gallagher, Johnny Winter and Joe Bonamassa.
Recent shows have included festival appearances in Italy, Belgium, Bosnia and India, and the band continues to tour and play festival dates across Europe. I've released nineteen solo albums so far. Hope you enjoy my music on Spotify - keep rockin' the blues! More info at www.mickclarke.com
