Burnside Album Details

Clarke, Terry, Lucky

Born to Irish parents but raised in Reading, England, Terry Clarke gained popularity in the late '50s and early '60s with the Eagles, a Bristol-based rock group. Touring across Europe, the band also opened and shared the stage with Del Shannon, Stevie Wonder, and Dionne Warwick. After the group broke up in the mid-'60s, Clarke joined Pickettywitch, a group whose potential was never fully realized. After splitting up in 1973, Clarke continued performing in the British Isles, but also sought out other areas, particularly Austin, TX. He appeared on various compilations with Willie Nelson, the Band, and Joe Ely, among others. Having performed with countless performers ranging in styles from acoustic folk to jazz, Clarke originally released Lucky in 1999.
