Radio Waves Music Festival – 2015

RadioWavesCommunity Radio, WTIP, in Grand Marais produced yet another Radio Waves Music Festival. I did a set last year and was invited back, This year joined by Laura Moe. There was lots of great music and plenty of socializing with local and regional musicians. Our contribution was well received and we look forward to next year!

Larry and Laura are a wonderful compliment to each other. Larry’s steady voice and picking meld beautifully with Laura who is a true songbird! They offer original material as well as old familiar favorites. What could be better?

Cathy Quinn, Artistic Director, WTIP’s Radio Waves Music Festival

 Critical Acclaim for Larry Carpenter’s Recordings

“Larry Carpenter compellingly weaves history and a passion for adventure together  through song. Each track on Old Voice tells a different story that will bring listeners to another time and place, and soon have them yearning to explore the globe.”

 – Will Moore, Music Director of WTIP North Shore Community Radio, Oct 2014

“His sound is a simple one exuding the quality of elemental grace we haven’t seen since the likes of Tom Rush, Eric Anderson, Phil Ochs and such surfaced back in the late 60s and early 70s.”

-Dwight Hobbes, Twin Cities Daily Planet,  7 March 2014.
