The Larry Keel Experience
Keel credits his solid musical grounding to his Bluegrass family upbringing, deeply steeped in the rich mountain music culture and heritage of Southwest Virginia. He’s also got a knack for choosing interesting and appealing material from all realms. He has earned the highest respect and billing among the top acoustic and jam rock musicians including Tony Rice, Steve Martin, Vassar Clements, Sam Bush, Del McCoury, John Hartford, and Bill Monroe. His fierce, high-spirited energy along with his blazing guitar power, deep rumbling voice, earthy songwriting, and down-home-gritty-good-time charm draws fans young and old. The Larry Keel Experience features award-winning Jared Pool (mandolin, vocals) and wife Jenny Keel (bass, tenor vocal harmonies). Keel performed at New York’s Carnegie Hall in 2017 celebrating Django Reinhardt’s influence on the world of guitar music. Throughout his career, Keel has released 15 albums, including his latest, Experienced, in 2016.
