Clarence Howard, son of Clint and Betty Howard of Mountain City, Tennessee, passed away on February 8, 2007 after a hard-fought battle with cancer. It is sad thing to know that we will not hear him banter and play guitar with his father and son Garet on stage again? The Clint Howard band, joined by Doc Watson had delighted audiences at the Traditional Stage at the Merle Watson Festival in Wilkesboro, North Carolina for many years. Please keep Clint and Betty and their family in your prayers and thoughts. If you would like to send the family a note, you may reach them by sending an email.
