Misisipi Mike Wolf & Friends pay tribute to
Texas troubadour Guy Clark
Guy Clark (November 6, 1941 – May 17, 2016) was dubbed a “king of the Texas troubadours” by that humble southern rag, the New York Times, and they were likely right on the mark. Misisipi Mike and a few great friends from the San Francisco Americana music scene will gather Sunday night, June 26th to pick and sing their way through just a small part of the Guy Clark songbook. You’ll hear plenty of tunes you didn’t know were his, songs made into hits by artists including Jerry Jeff Walker, Jimmy Buffett, Lyle Lovett, Ricky Skaggs, Steve Wariner, and Rodney Crowell.
Clark, born in Monahans, Texas, became a cornerstone of the Nashville scene, providing copious amounts of material to numerous outlaw and progressive country artists. His songs “L.A. Freeway” and “Desperados Waiting for a Train” helped launch his career and were covered countless times by others. Clark won the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Folk Album for his own “My Favorite Picture of You.”
