Clark grew up in a musical family where, as a youth, he learned many of the tunes we play today. He plays old-style wooden flute (modeled on an 1840's Pratten) and whistles. These instruments can be played very fast, bend notes, and ornament tunes in a particular way which is common in Irish music.

Clark has been a pediatric nurse for many years and is a retired professor from UH School of Nursing.
