About Potter Clark

Potter has had a passion for the fiddle since a young age. He started playing Bluegrass fiddle at 8, jamming with his father and uncle, attending jam circles with them, and performing with his uncle’s band, The Mutineers. Throughout his education, he was introduced to the world of classical music, where he joined numerous orchestras in and out of school and found a love for orchestral ensemble playing.

While classical music served a large role in Potter’s development as a player, his roots are in folk music still. Since starting his bachelor’s degree at American University, he has refocused his practice and performance on improvisation and folk music, specializing in American, Irish, and Scottish fiddle traditions.

As a teacher, Potter is most concerned with helping students discover their own voice through the violin whether that be through classical music, improvisation, folk music, or another genre.
