What the 18th Annual Blues Festival Announcement says about Clifford Curry:
"One of the Southeast’s storybook singers, Clifford Curry has deep history in R&B, blues, gospel, shag and beach music. Born in Knoxville, TN, he first cut for Savoy Records, while still in high school, with his group The Five Pennies – spectacular recordings prized by collectors to this day.

In 1967 Clifford had his biggest hit, “She Shot a Hole in My Soul,” a beach music classic still packing dance floors. Now more than ever, this beloved artist is a force to be reckoned with, having won numerous CAMMY Awards (beach music’s “Grammys”) and still on the charts ..."
