The Larry Keel Experience combines a multitude of musical influences, instrumental dexterity, and original songs to create an explosive acoustic sound. The band consists of lead vocalist/guitarist Larry Keel, bassist/harmony vocalist Jenny Keel, and banjoist/vocalist Will Lee; many other musicians have performed with the Larry Keel Experience both live and in the studio. Larry Keel, a Virginia native, is a master guitar player, having finished first place in the 1993 and 1995 flatpicking contest at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. He also handles most of the vocals for the Larry Keel Experience, and composes many of the band’s songs and instrumentals. The band draws from folk, progressive bluegrass, jazz, and reggae, creating an exciting mix of music that is impossible to pigeonhole. Although the Larry Keel Experience has shown a willingness to continually adopt new approaches, the listener can always expect excellent acoustic music grounded in tradition, a winning balance of appealing material and inventive jams. Larry Keel has recorded more than a dozen albums, and he is an expert fisherman, and he recently launched the event and website concept Fishin and Pickin.
