LARRY GARNER AT THE EEL PIE CLUB- THURS 23 MAY ‘13

 

On Thursday 23 May, The Eel Pie Club is pleased to welcome from Baton

Rouge, Lousiana, Larry Garner:

 

Larry Garner is from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  With his Boogaloo Blues Band

he won the 5th International Blues Challenge in 1988, and has toured

extensively since.  Inspired by artistes such as Silas Hogan and Clarence

Edwards, he was inducted into the Louisiana Blues Hall of Fame in 2002.  He

is a five-time Blues Music Award nominee, once for Most Promising Artist,

and four times for Contemporary Male Blues Artist.  The BBC honoured Larry

as its Bluesman of The Year, and Larry was honored as Blues Songwriter of

The Year three times and was twice named Bluesman of The Year Award by Real

Blues Magazine.  Garner=92s powerful vocals and expressive musicianship mak=

e

him a natural front man. His songs are delivered with a sense of irony with

lyrics that are both meaningful and amusing. Added to this Larry has a

wonderfully expressive voice, is a fine guitarist and a great performer.

 

Larry has found a true musical soul mate in British blues veteran Norman

Beaker, (who we recently saw at The Eel Pie Club backing Chris Farlowe).

Garner may have paid his dues in Baton Rouge while Beaker cut his gigging

teeth in northern England with people such as Alexis Korner, Jack Bruce,

Jimmy Rogers, BB King but put them on stage together, and they are

definitely drawing from the same musical roots.
