Clark Family reunites for Harvester Center concert Saturday

By  | 

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) Members of the Clark Family have traveled a long and winding road over the last 25 years, but they've come home for a musical reunion this weekend.

Saturday night, several members of the musical family will share the stage at the Harvester Performance Center in Rocky Mount.

With their roots in bluegrass and gospel music, the older brothers courted national success as country artists.

Though they haven't performed together in several years, they say it felt right to get the band back together.

"We had a couple of little glitches to work out," Alan Clark told WDBJ7, "but when we started practicing and playing and jamming again, it's like for me, it all started coming back. It's like we picked up right where we left off."

It's a big family with 11 children.

The younger siblings are all talented musicians in their own right, and this time they'll be sharing the stage for the family's first performance at the Harvester Center.

"This type of music, especially bluegrass and acoustic, it's what we grew up on, it's what we cut our teeth on," said Austin Clark. "And I think it just comes so naturally, like I think Alan said earlier, it's like riding a bike, it just comes back."

The doors open at 6:30 Saturday, for a show that starts at 7 p.m..

Reuniting in their hometown, the Clarks are promising "a night to remember."
