The CORAL CREEK STRING BAND is a dynamic and talented acoustic project from Colorado, USA, playing genre-bending original music and unique renditions of traditional bluegrass tunes and Americana classics.  Coral Creek performs the original music of Chris Thompson (guitar/vocals) and features some of the top acoustic players in the Colorado music scene today including  Jordan Ramsey (mandolin/vocals), Christine King (fiddle/vocals) and Andrew Bonnis (bass/vocals).  With the release of his new record, THE ROAD AHEAD (produced by Bill Nershi of the String Cheese Incident), Chris Thompson has emerged on the Colorado music scene as a song-writing force appealing to the traditional bluegrass, new-grass and jam-band audiences alike.  The Coral Creek String Band released their first studio record, FORTY YEARS, in August of 2012 and will be supporting the record with tours in the US, Europe and the Caribbean.

Members of Coral Creek have performed and recorded with distinguished musicians including Sam Bush, Dave Grisman, Darol Anger, Gretchen Wilson, Sally van Meter, Tim Carbone (Railroad Earth), Bill Nershi, Kyle Hollingsworth and Keith Moseley (The String Cheese Incident), Drew Emmitt, Vince Herman and Andy Thorn (Leftover Salmon), Ben Kaufman and Adam Aijala (Yonder Mountain String Band), Pete Wernick (Hot Rize), Cornmeal, Hot Buttered Rum, Greensky Bluegrass, and more.

Originally from Rochester, MN, Chris Thompson has lived and performed in Europe, Mexico, Southern Africa, the Caribbean and throughout the US.  In 2001, Chris settled down in Colorado, planted roots and started writing and recording his unique flavor of roots music.

Clarke Wright has been playing music in some form or another since the early 1970s. He worked with David Ferretta and the Sunday River Boys in Denver in the mid ’70s and appears on their Biscuit City recording “You Can Dress ‘Em Up, But You Can’t Take ‘Em Out.” If you ask Clarke how long he has been playing fiddle he will tell you, “Long enough to where you would say, ‘Wow, shouldn’t you be better than that?'” He has spent over 30 years with The Hollywood Rodeo Band and later their pared down acoustic version, High, Wide and Handsome. HRB/HWH recorded 7 albums and has toured extensively, visiting over 40 nations and territories, entertaining our nation’s Armed Forces.

He picked up the fiddle ‘sometime back in the 20th Century’, and is self taught. “When I hit a wrong note or clam-out a break, I just blame my teacher,” Clarke says.

Originally from Minnesota and the son of an Episcopal Priest, Clarke has evolved into “A Heckuva Fiddle Player” (AHFP). Clarke plays mostly fiddle and guitar, but also mandolin and bass sometimes.

He plays 4 and 5-string fiddles and gets his inspiration and is influenced by Byron Berline, Bob Wills, Tommy Jackson, Leon Rausch, Tom Morrell and the Time Warp Tophands, Johnny Gimble, Vassar Clements, Chet Atkins, Randy “Snuffy” Elmore and a whole lot more!

Clarke is extremely excited about joining 7522 Radio and he looks forward to record some podcasts (and play live) very soon.
