Description

The Gloria Faye Dingus Music Alliance is pleased to welcome Clarence "The Bluesman" Turner to Gloria's Listening Room. At the age of eight, Clarence, began a lifelong love affair with the blues and no question that the guitar chose Clarence. Throughout his teenage years, he played his guitar to audiences both local and abroad. The blues cannot be truly mastered unless one has experienced life and experienced it hard. Following suit, Clarence disappeared from the music scene in his early twenties and experienced the heart and origin of the blues, a strong dose of reality, pure love, painful hardship, and amazing good times. Clarence realized that what he felt in his gut and soul, could only be expressed thru his first love of his guitar. As such, he returned to wail the blues as only he can. Once, at a Blues after party in Richmond, VA, Clarence took the stage after Big Bill Morganfield. As Big Bill was leaving, he immediately returned to listen and then said, “ Now that’s the Blues”! Over the years, Clarence developed signature guitar strokes by using items other than the usual “pick”. His fiery guitar picking included using cell phones, microphones, harmonicas and everything else in between. As he puts it, “Why use a pick when there are so many other interesting things to use?” Soon thereafter, Clarence started his explosive blues band, which propelled him to become one of the greatest blues men of this century. After performing at Blues Alley, he decided to release his CD “Live at Blues Alley”. In the spring of 2011, he released his highly anticipated new CD entitled “PAY DAY”. Clarence was born into blues and as you read further you will agree that he has been appropriately sanctioned; Clarence “The Bluesman” Turner. Tickets are $20 and seating is limited so advance purchase or reservations are highly recommended. Children 12 and under admitted free with parent or guardian. Proceeds will go to The Gloria Faye Dingus Music Alliance, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing music education and instruments for all those wishing to learn and enjoy music.
