Clarence "The Bluesman" Turner

Clarence "The Bluesman" Turner

An infectious, rhythmic, gritty, and soulful, feeling sparked a fire
into Clarence Turner while listening to his father’s collection of LP’s,
which included the incomparable Muddy Waters and the legendary
Howlin’ Wolf. Every wailing stroke of the guitar spoke to Clarence;
and at the age of eight he began a life long love affair with the blues.
It was no question the guitar chose Clarence. Throughout his
teenage years, he played his guitar delivering the blues and receiving
love from audiences both local and abroad. The blues cannot be truly
mastered unless one has experienced life and experienced it hard.
During his early years, Clarence 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 love of his guitar. As such, he began 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 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?”
In the spring of 2011, he released his highly anticipated CD
entitled “PAY DAY”. In August 2015, Clarence released his latest CD
“The Caster Blaster”. He has received great reviews nationally and
internationally for this project. Once Clarence takes the stage, you
will immediately see why Clarence Turner has been appropriately
sanctioned, “The Blues Man”.
