    Larry Keel Experience

    Americana

    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.

    Keel has a variety of musical formats he presents throughout the

    year; look out for his core band

    The Larry Keel Experience

    (featuring award-winning and highly accomplished

    Jared Pool

    on mandolin and penetrating vocals, and wife

    Jenny Keel

    with

    her rock solid bass lines as well as tenor vocal harmonies),

    Larry Does Jerry

    (Keel performing the music for Jerry Garcia

    and the Grateful Dead),

    Larry and the Smok

    in

    J

    s

    (featuring

    Jon Stickley, Jay Starling and Jared Pool),

    Keller Williams and

    the Keels,

    and steady swirl of pairings with Keel and

    Drew

    Emmitt, Andy Thorn, Danny Barnes,

    members of the

    Del

    McCoury Band, Steep Canyon Rangers,

    just to name a few

    .

    Of note for early 2017 is Keel

    s top billing at New York

    s

    Carnegie Hall, where he will headline along with Al Di

    Meola, Stefane Wrembel and Stochelo Rosenberg at the

    Django A Go-Go concert, celebrating Django Reinhardt

    s

    influence on the world of guitar music.

    Throughout his career, Keel has released 15 albums and is

    featured on 10 others. The most recent release, March 2016, is

    EXPERIENCED

    , an entirely original work that showcases

    Larry

    s and banjo virtuoso

    Will Lee

    s

    exceptional songwriting,

    singing and jaw-dropping instrumental performances,

    accompanied by Keel

    s equally talented wife

    Jenny Keel

    on

    upright bass and harmony vocals. This

    Americana Radio

    charting

    album exemplifies the raw sophistication of Keel

    s

    progressive acoustic style, and features musician-friends who

    appear as guests on various tracks of

    Experienced;

    the artists

    include Sam Bush, Del McCoury, Peter Rowan, Keller

    Williams, Jason Carter (Del McCoury Band), Mike Guggino

    (Steep Canyon Rangers) and Anders Beck (Greensky

    Bluegrass). Quotes about Keel and his music from these artists

    themselves capture the essence of what this album and Keel

    s

    artistry represents:

    Larry Keel is a triple threat

    ...

    songwriter, guitar player,

    entertainer. He can do it all.

    Del McCoury

    Larry is a true original, be it traditional, progressive, improv..

    he does it all, and with such joy. I love jamming with Keel.

    Enjoy the music. Larry does.

    Sam Bush

    Larry is the yin and the yang.. he will break your heart with a

    waltz, but he can also scare the hell out of you in the next so

    ng.

    He plays on the edge.. no, strike that-

    he creates genius guitar

    solos while staring over the edge and laughing maniacally.

    Anders Beck, Greensky Bluegrass

    For Keel the musical mission is always clear: to let natural

    ability, finely-honed skill, honest emotion and fearlessness

    connect the playing and singing to audiences, to entertain

    and to thoroughly enjoy the experience of creating and

    sharing in music.
