Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown never heard a song he couldn’t sing or an instrument he wouldn’t play.
 
Blues, rock, jazz, country, folk, cajun, R&B — there wasn’t much music that didn’t move him to pick up an instrument and play. And those instruments were just as varied: guitar, drums, mandolin, viola, harmonica, and fiddle. He is regarded as perhaps the finest blues fiddler of the past century.
 
The Grammy-winning multi-instrumentalist died on 10 September 2005, in Orange, Texas, where he went following Hurricane Katrina.
 
Here’s his recording of “Going Back to Louisiana.”
