I am jealous. I really wanted to attend the Larry Keel workshop. Have fun and looking forward to your report of the weekend. I am excited that I am going to see Larry Keel and Tony Rice next Friday in Richmond.

I interviewed Larry Keel a couple of days ago for Bluegrass Unlimited and heard from them today as they headed for beautiful southern Ohio (spent a lot of time talking with Larry about playing next to Tony Rice as he is fully aware of his luck getting to pick with such a legend, "Tony will walk up to within six inches of me and play rhythm when it is my turn and knowing it is Tony Rice playing that close to me, sometimes I have to close me eyes when playing a lead.") I won't be able to make it this weekend, unfortunately, but with this lineup, anything is possible. Jorma is always awesome and an excellent musical ambassador for southern Ohio, Keel can pick his ass off, and with it being Halloween, Bromberg is liable to come up with just about anything. Should be fun. Looking forward to a full report.

We just did the interview last week so it will be a couple of months before it will be in BU. Here is a much smaller and less indepth interview I did with Larry back in 2008;

quote:
Larry Keel and Natural Bridge Build On Tri-state Success With Gig At V Club

For the Herald Dispatch

Larry Keel and Natural Bridge have built up quite a following in the Tri-state area and all of West Virginia with numerous appearances in the last few years. The band’s open-minded mountain music has been featured yearly at the Appalachian Uprising, they recently appeared on Mountain Stage in Charleston, and they have opened for bluegrass legends the Del McCoury band here in Huntington. Tonight, the group will headline at the V Club with the show starting at 10pm.

Larry Keel and Natural Bridge describe their sound as “new and old mountain music.” At the heart of the group is Keel, considered one of the best and most inventive flatpick guitarists in the business. He combines a tradition of bluegrass and old time music learned in his native Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia with more modern sounds such as the blues, reggae, swing, and rock.

Playing bass with the group is Larry’s wife Jenny, who also provides harmony vocals. Rounding out the band is multi-instrumentalist Mark Schimick, who plays the mandolin and fiddle, and banjo picker, songwriter and Louisiana native Jason Flournoy, formerly of the Colorado jamgrass band Shanti Groove.

“There is a buzz over there for us that has been getting pretty big,” said Keel about performing in West Virginia. “Last year we did the All Good festival up in Masontown, and we played there with Keller Williams and Bob Weir (of the Grateful Dead) got to come out and play with us. It seems like I’ve been running into the kids from West Virginia that were at that All Good show. And, the Appalachian Uprising, of course, and that general area has a lot of West Virginia buddies that we know. We’re trying to cover the whole state. And, you got all of them Bing Brothers, they’re big pickers. Legendary. It’s good that they are out there picking. They’ve always been great. There is lots of talent in West Virginia that I’ve always been interested in. Don Stover, the Lilly Brothers, great music coming out of that state.”

The band is on a roll lately, with fresh music and a new album in the works.

“We’re doing a whole lot of original stuff,” said Keel. “We’ve got some of Mark Schimick’s originals in there, and one of Jason Flournoy’s banjo tunes as well. I’ve been writing tunes. Just a lot of new ideas, and we’ve been running with the energy of it. People seem to be liking it. We’ve revamped a couple of my old originals. I’m having a blast with it, man. It feels like really good music. Really fun. People have a good time when they come out.”

Larry Keel also has an opinion about the change of the slogan on the “Welcome To West Virginia” signs found on the roads leading into the Mountain State.

“The heck with ‘Open For Business,’” said Keel. “I think they need to go back to ‘Wild and Wonderful,’ because that is what it’s all about. It will always be ‘Wild and Wonderful’ to me, anyway.”
