Larry Kaplan in Concert
Join us for an intimate house concert with Larry Kaplan.
Kaplan's music is known widely in both the US and abroad for its strong storytelling and for its simple and beautiful melody lines, and has been sung and recorded by many contemporary and traditional folk artists around the world. Accompanying himself on guitar and banjo, many of his works have deep roots in New England and respectfully capture the spirit that derives from small, often quiet events in history that have shaped the New England spirit, some serious, some funny, many eccentric.
"Old Zeb", "Song for Gale", "Song for The Bowdoin", "John", "Get Her Into Shore", "Selling The Isabel",and "Waiting for the Glue to Dry" are just a few examples of his extensive song bag ---poignant stories in song, written in the truest folk tradition, honest, highly singable always memorable.
Here's what reviewers are saying:
"Some of the most finely-crafted songs in modern American folk music--- stunningly painted portraits of life in the North Atlantic seaboard states."
-Larry L. Looney
The Roots Music Authority, Austin, Texas USA
"Writes so honestly about people, he makes you feel a part of their lives."
-Steven Ide, Dirty Linen
Larry has just released a new CD through Folk Legacy Records "True Enough",introducing a new offering of music along with old favorites.
