Jewel Clark
is a multi-faceted singer-songwriter
in the country tradition, and daugh-
ter of legendary cowboy yodeler,
Yodeling Slim Clark. Whether she’s
singing her original Country and
Honky-Tonk influenced songs, Rock
n Roll, Blues or yodeling to the old
standards - many of which were
written by her father, and have
become true classics - Jewel shares
a fun and energetic connection with
her audiences that is truly heartfelt -
sincere, and real.

Jewel’s music offers a happy blend of
modern sensibility and traditional
country-western music that has
brought her fans around the country,
critical acclaim and many awards,
including 5-time Maine Country Music
Association’s Folk Artist of the year.
With performances ranging from 2006
American Folk Festival, to opening
billing for Tanya Tucker, The Maine
Festival, rodeos and fiddlers contests,
her live act is engaging and entertaining.
It reflects her family’s musical roots
and her upbringing as a "backstage
child" during the heyday of her well-
known father’s career on both stage
and television.

Greatly influenced by Yodelin’ Slim, who
was honored with a star on Nashville’s
Walkway of Stars - and having been
exposed to artists he worked with
from Buck Owens, Faron Young, and
Carl Smith to June Carter and Johnny
Cash - Jewel has taken those influences
to heart in developing her personal
musical style. "Yodeling is like laughing
to music," she says.

She now yodels not only because she
enjoys it (and it makes people smile) but
also because she feels it is important to
carry on the art that was such a part
of her father’s career. Her new cd,
"Yodelin’ Live at The Outlook," was
recorded in front of a live audience at
The Outlook studio in Bethel, Maine,
accompanied by Donnie Katlin on
guitar and mandolin. It features
Jewel’s versions of yodeling songs
written by her mother, Blue-Eyed Celia,
her father, and several that she has
written herself. The cover art even
shows Jewel playing Slim’s guitar, with
a photo of Slim and Celia smiling down
from the clouds.

Jewel is also working with two projects
aimed at teaching children about
yodeling. She has created a perfor-
mance, "How the West Was Sung,"
geared toward entertaining students
while teaching them a bit about the
Old West. And a song from her new cd,
"Little Old Lady Who," is part of a
children’s book and cd project which
she has written and illustrated. An
accomplished visual artist as well,
Jewel has painted large murals in the
tradition of New England itinerant
artists in homes and businesses
throughout Western Maine, where
she lives with her family. She has a
tireless creative spark that is truly
contagious, and it shines in all her
work, whether music, art, performing,
or sharing her unique memories of a
time when cowboys with guitars ruled
the Country music world.
