Larry keel



If flat-picking guitar on the highest level required a resumé, Larry Keel could skip the interview process altogether and get straight to work. Keel has collaborated and shared the stage with an absolute all-star cast over the course of his career. From bluegrass legends Tony Rice, Vassar Clements, Bill Monroe, and John Hartford to modern rock and jam mainstays Keller Williams, Leftover Salmon, Little Feat, and String Cheese Incident, all of Keel’s influences and peers sing his praises—not just for his musicianship, but his friendship as well. Larry Keel has released 16 albums and is featured on 10 others. His newest release, One, follows Keel, along with his longtime bandmates Jenny Keel and Jared Pool, from the philosophical to the supernatural to the sardonic to the unapologetically romantic, all expressed with his charmingly gritty voice and masterful acoustic guitar work.

“...One of the finest flatpickers around.” – Rolling Stone Country

“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 song.  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
