Keel Brothers Volume 2

Keel Brothers Volume 2 I should clear the air up front and tell you that this disc was recorded, mixed, and mastered by me at my studio.

Keel Brothers Volume 2 is the second duet recording flatpicking guitar master Larry Keel has made his brother Gary. This is a brother duet album that at times just features the two brothers and their guitars. They are joined on this disc by their wives, who both play bass on various tracks. Larry’s wife, Jenny, also contributes harmony vocals on several songs. The CD is comprised largely of traditional fiddle tunes as well as old folk and bluegrass songs. Possibly my favorite track on the disc is the cover of Gordon Lightfoot’s ballad Don Quixote.

Audio samples in the Real Player format are available here.

I can also tell you that we have the majority of the tracks cut for an upcoming band CD from Larry and his bluegrass band, Natural Bridge. This will be the sophmore release from this band and should be out in the spring of 2007.

  • I just love Larry Keel. He and Jenny made a friend out of me when they played at Henflings in Ben Lomond, CA, with Curtis Burch a few years ago! Great picking, good harmonies, and exciting entertainment…and FUN people! The real deal kinda folks you like to know doing Bluegrass Music. I sure hope they come out here and play somewhere else besides High Sierra…which I consider (TOO hippy for me) music festival!
