Robin Clarke, a member of the band Best Kept Secret
Robin Clarke

Live music is clearly in Robin's blood; his dad played in a number of successful local bands in the 60s, 70s and 80s, including "The Bisley Brothers" and "Dance Sound".

A guitarist for over twenty years, Robin co-founded "Friends In Low Places" with Robert, and has also appeared with a Punk / Ska band, and a Rock & Roll band.

Robin says "I first found my love of entertaining when I played guitar for my friends in the Bridge common room at Richard Huish, but it was several years before I had the audacity to charge money for having that much fun".

Robin plays a Takamine 6-string, Crafter mandolin, Yamaha fretless bass and sometimes uses an eBow. He uses a Shure SM-58 microphone and controls the loop pedal which provides the rhythmic foundation of songs such as "Black Horse & The Cherry Tree", "New Shoes" and "I Want to Break Free".

Robin has also recently built a Mandocello which is played at some gigs.
