Born and raised in Chicago, Larry Allen Brown has had a long career as lead guitarist for a variety of groups. Heavily influenced by Dave van Ronk, John Fahey, and Martin Simpson, Larry embarked upon a solo career as a composer and performer on the acoustic guitar six years ago. A graduate of the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Larry released Cobb Lane in 2000, and just released his second CD, Music for the High Country - The Soundtrack of Blowing Rock. The music is a blend of original compositions, as well as traditional classics, arranged in Larry’s unique style, encompassing both his solo acoustic guitar, and his outstanding chamber ensemble, known as the Acoustic Earth Orchestra. Music for the High Country has been endorsed by the Chamber of Commerce of Blowing Rock, NC as their official soundtrack. Larry teaches in Birmingham, Alabama where he resides with his wife Kathryn and their dogs, Dipstick and Murphy.
