Starkey & Clark to perform at Sutton Ole Time Music Hour!
In 1992 Richard Starkey went to work for Martin, at first becoming a “utility” person, which means he filled in wherever necessary.
This kind of moving around gave Starkey the leg up and knowledge that few people get. He has helped with construction, repair, and research and development, including the design of a special guitar inspired by one of his heroes, musician Clarence White.
He owns the second Martin D-18 Clarence White guitar ever made.
Half of the Williams & Clark Expedition. Clark has won the National Mandolin Championship in Winfield, Kansas, the Buck White International Mandolin Championship in Kerrville, Texas, and the World Mandolin Championship in Des Moines, Iowa, Bobby can only be called a true mandolin virtuoso. Bobby began his musical career alongside another Oklahoma native, Vince Gill, as a member of the Bluegrass ReVue. After moving to Nashville in 1983, he became a well sought after instrumentalist and worked with Vassar Clements, Larry McNeely, Peter Rowan, Jim Lauderdale and the Bluegrass Cardinals and most recently spent the last 16 years with Mike Snider on the Grand Ole Opry. Bobby has recorded two solo albums and has worked on other album projects with the likes of Ricky Skaggs and Vince Gill. Bobby’s original music has been heard on TNN and CMT as theme music for “Celebrity Outdoors” and “Southern Outdoors” as well as in the movie “Borderlines”. Bobby recently engineered and played on the Emmy Award-winning soundtrack for the PBS documentary “Rachel and Andrew”, which was recorded at his own TOP DOG RECORDING AND SOUND.
