Check out this nice interview with Larry Keel about playing with Danny Barnes that is in GoUpstate.com this week:

For the Herald-Journal

Look through Larry Keel’s discography and it’s easy to see that the Virginia-based flat picking guitarist is fond of jamming with others.

He has made albums with several different groups, individual acts and his family.

Now, he’s making music with banjoist Danny Barnes.

The duo, along with Keel’s wife Jenny on bass, play at 9 p.m. Thursday at the Pisgah Brewing Company in Black Mountain, N.C.

“I love being able to present something new to the crowd,” Keel said. “Mixing it up keeps it fun for the crowd and for myself.”

He and Barnes met up several years ago at the Northwest String Summit Music Festival and have played together on several occasions.

Keel is a big fan of Barnes’ music.

“I love a chance to play music with Danny Barnes, I tell ya. He’s just the newest, greatest songwriter that I’ve heard,” Keel said.

Larry Keel & Natural Bridge play Gertle’s place in Louisville, KY tonight along with the Rumpke Mountain Boys. Everytime these guys get together a big pickin jam breaks out… Check it out:

And here’s a fabulous write-up in the Leo Weekly about the show:

Larry Keel’s website sports the countrified boast “Guitar Legend & Master Fisherman.” While I’m sure his unruly beard and general country demeanor support the latter (at least on a surface level), there’s no arguing the former. Whether you catch him in a solo setting, showing off his white-lightning acoustic fingerpicking, or in more fleshed-out musical digs with his Appalachian ensemble Natural Bridge, you’re likely to be transported to a place where moonshine flows aplenty and coal mines loom in the distance. While his rusty, bar-dweller vocals are strictly backwoods beauty, pigeonholing Keel’s versatile guitar playing would be a mistake. He’s capable of dizzying displays of virtuosity and calming, sermon-like reverence. Rumpke Mountain Boys open. —Ryan Reed
