Born and raised in Chicago, Larry attended High School with John Prine, and has had a long career as lead guitarist for a variety of groups. Heavily influenced by Dave Van Ronk, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and Townes Van Zandt, Larry embarked upon a solo career as a composer and performer on the acoustic guitar in 2000.
A Berklee College of Music Alumni, Larry released two instrumental albums: Cobb Lane in 2000, followed by 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. His current release is Covered Bridges w/ the Acoustic Earth Orchestra backing him up.
Larry lives in Brattleboro Vermont and performs throughout New England, and has taught the guitar in Virginia, Alabama, Chicago, and New England for the past 35 years.
