"Perhaps the most extraordinary CD (Covered Bridges) we’ve received in the mail in a decade! Truly compelling lyrics and heartfelt vocals driven by memorable tunes. Describing love lost, loneliness, desperation, and occasionally, elation. The music is polished Americana one might describe as Chamber Folk with a country lilt. Three superb instrumentalists and one resonant, heart-tugging voice. Bassist Billy Martin is a key to the sound, and on additional guitars and mandolin, the incomparable Bob McCarthy. Larry, guitarist and vocalist extraordinaire, is a long-ago Berklee grad who grew up on Dylan, Dave Van Ronk, Chris Smithers, and a whole gamut of folkies from the 60s.
