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

it’s been an amazing couple of weeks for the Keel Krew-   we’ve become quite skilled at navigating the NOAA weather site… it’s the only chance we have of making it to our scheduled shows these days!  5 cancellations due to weather , in the past 3 months..  including, regretfully, the recent show at Mt. State Brewery in Thomas WV..  that elevation and those roads in and out of there are just a bit beyond our travel abilities, when it has snowed there steady for 4 days in row before the show..
but!  after that, we raged into Morgantown WV and got all wild and wonderful with the happy Mountaineers that night..  the good folks from Half Time String Band always warm things up with excellent pickin and singing, and LKNB got spiritual, spacey and psychedelic with one of the most improvisational shows we’ve ever played..  unforgettable night-

then, weather once again propelled us into a flurry of flight to get us on the road ahead of schedule last weekend, in order to make it to Colombus OH for a big night of mayhem and magic at Vic’s Midnight Cafe, sponsored by the Cowboy Hillbilly Hippy Folk..  5 bands in one night!  it was a 2-ring circus of splendid production–  back and forth between 2 stages, with fantastic sounds and mergings of minds with LKNB, Rumpke Mountain Boys, Cowboy Hillbilly Hippy Folk, Tin Hearts and One Under…!  Supreme fun and seamless flow of music for , like, 8 hours! Paul Painter is the man!

from there, we zipped through the steady snow and slush over to Pittsburgh, PA where things got scary and hairy weather wise—   thank goodness for 4 Low on the transmission..  it helps, when nothing’s been plowed!  but we made it to the wonderful Rex Theater in a super cool section of Pittsburgh..  there, we met up with our great bluegrass buddies, Greensky Bluegrass band, and the evening was launched with 2 huge sets from both bands-  great sounds abounded-   we all collaborated on a mini super set of bluegrass and reggae favorites-  we love the way those guys do “Stop that Train” by Peter Tosh..

onward through the winter fog and sleet down to Cincinnati on Saturday, where we met up with good buddies Rumpke Mountain Boys again, for a fuller night of music from those excellent folks-   they rocked a superb set of music-  talk about the ultimate fun zone!  the Play by Play is a great place to hear music-  the crew there treats everyone right..  we couldn’t help but rocket into some super satisfying pickin –  we’re on a Miles Davis kick right now, so everything has an extra improv-spontaneous-combustion, plus mountain magic feel at the moment..  AND THEN!!!!  as an added, incredible surprise, the great Jeremy Saunders (first horn in the Marine Corps Band, and member of Acoustic Syndicate!!) joined us for our set!  he sends things into an orbit that’s rarely heard, and fosters a musical exploration that we all are eager to take part in!!  then, we added all the Rumpke Mt. Boys for an extended jam that sent everything into ultra orbit..  no one wanted the night to end…..      it was pretty late when it did!

until the next episode————
