Volume Five has announced Harry Clark as the new mandolinist with the band.
Harry hails from Searcy, AR where he got started on mandolin at the age of 10. He picked up guitar a few years later and started performing regionally with his family in 2007. Two years later he won the Arkansas State Mandolin Championship, where he was also runner up State Guitar Champion.
Last year he headed to Nashville and started working as lead guitarist with The Roys, and has recently moved back home to Arkansas to work with Volume Five.
Clark tells us that he’s very happy about the switch.
“I am very excited to be playing alongside such high caliber musicians and good people as the guys from Volume Five. I am looking forward to playing a lot of music with these guys in the near future.”
