ABOUT: Doug Clark & Joe Brasch - Formed in 1999, Trailer Park Girls has become well-known for its edgy, lyric-driven songs about life here in the vast Ingrown Empire.
The band’s duo version features Joe Brasch, one of the area’s finest guitarists, and band founder Doug Clark, singer/songwriter on rhythm and fingerstyle guitar.
Catchy melodies tell satirical tales about the Gypsy Curse that hovers over Spokane, the woman who left her man for a Holy Roller and the modern evils of flight: “Stuck in the middle seat, between two big fat guys.”
UPCOMING:  Feb. 16 – Jackie McIntyre & Brad Keeler (Originals & bluegrass standards)
                            Mar. 9, 10 – Floating Crowbar (Traditional Irish)
