Larry & Jenny Keel

Larry Keel is an award-winning innovative flat-picking guitarist and singer/songwriter hailing from Appalachia. From an early age he began to forge a distinctive sound, taking traditional music and infusing it with modern light. As a composer and singer, Keel integrates raw honesty and charming grit to form a unique brand of music he calls ‘experimental folk’. He has appeared on over 20 albums and has written songs that have been recorded and performed by distinguished artists including Grammy-award winners Del McCoury and The Infamous Stringdusters. Keel has collaborated and continues to merge creative forces with some of the greatest artists in modern roots music such as Tyler Childers, Billy Strings, Tony Rice, Keller Williams and Sam Bush, to name a few. His latest recording is a solo album titled American Dream, a project entirely written, produced and performed by Keel on a variety of instruments in his home, during the 2020 pandemic quarantine.
