Born and raised in Chicago, Larry has had a long career as lead guitarist for a variety of groups. Heavily influenced by Dave van Ronk, John Fahey, and Martin Simpson, Larry embarked upon a solo career as a composer and performer on the acoustic guitar ten years ago. A graduate of the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Larry released Cobb Lane in 2000, and just released his second CD, Music for the High Country - The Soundtrack of Blowing Rock. The music is a blend of original compositions, as well as traditional classics, arranged in Larry’s unique style, encompassing both his solo acoustic guitar, and his outstanding chamber ensemble, known as the Acoustic Earth Orchestra. Music for the High Country has been endorsed by the Chamber of Commerce of Blowing Rock, NC as their official soundtrack. He is currently in production on his third CD titled, Stories that we wrote which is being produced by Will Ackerman, and is scheduled for release in September of 2011.
Larry has been a guest artist with Alasdair Fraser, Michael Manring, and Ken Bonfield, and participates in Ken Bonfield's Artistry of the Guitar program. He has been teaching the guitar for the past 25 years.
