Clarence Gatemouth Brown

Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown (April 18, 1924 – September 10, 2005) was an American musician from Louisiana and Texas[1] known for his work as a blues musician, as well as other styles of music. He spent his career fighting purism by synthesizing old blues, country, jazz, Cajun music and R&B styles.[2] His work also encompasses rock and roll, rock music, folk music, electric blues, and Texas blues.[1]

He was an acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, who played an array of musical instruments, including the guitar, fiddle, mandolin, viola, harmonica and drums. He won a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album in 1983 for his album, Alright Again!.[3] He is regarded as one of the most influential exponents of blues fiddle and has had enormous influence in American fiddle circles.

Brown’s two biggest musical influences were Louis Jordan and T-Bone Walker.[4]
