The Real Larry Keel Experience

Larry Keel is described by music critics and reviewers as the

most powerful, innovative and all-out exhilarating acoustic

flatpicking guitarist performing today. Keel has absorbed the

best lessons from his Bluegrass family upbringing, both sides

deeply steeped in the rich mountain music culture and heritage

of Southwest Virginia. From there, he has always integrated that

solid musical grounding and natural-born talent with his own

incomparable approach to playing amplified, acoustic guitar and

composing original music. He’s also got a knack for choosing

interesting and appealing material from all realms of music with

guts, whether it’s a tune written by a fellow song-

writer/musician friend, or a surprise cover from any number of

musical acts all over the map. The combination is pretty

irresistible, and has earned Keel the highest respect and billing

among the top acoustic and jam rock musicians alive, and some

now gone: Tony Rice, Chris Thile, Steve Martin, Tim

O’Brien, Vassar Clements, Sam Bush, Del McCoury, John

Hartford, Bill Monroe, Peter Rowan, and Danny Barnes to

name a few. And his fierce, high-spirited energy also appeals to

young rockers, jammers and alt-country pickers and fans who

are equally drawn to Keel’s blazing guitar power, the deep

rumbling voice, his earthy and expansive song-writing, and his

down-home-gritty-good-time charm. Keel convenes and

collaborates with JamBand and Rock giants Greensky

Bluegrass, Infamous Stringdusters, Yonder Mountain String

Band, Keller Williams, Jorma Kaukonen, David Nelson,

Little Feat, Railroad Earth, String Cheese Incident, Fruition

and Leftover Salmon, amongst others.
