Larry Carsman performs at Giuseppe’s on Sunday June 9th

LC by Mara 12,08 072
Larry Carsman, master singer/guitarist who interprets songs from Springsteen to Segovia, performs Saturday night June 9 from 6-9 PM at Giuseppe’s Restaurant, on Main Street in Gloucester’s West End.

Carsman cofounded the James Montgomery Band in 1971. He also taught guitar to many local luminaries — including Livingston Taylor, Pete Kennedy (The Kennedys), Chuck
McDermott (Wheatstraw) and many others.

Since the mid 70s, Larry has focused on selecting and arranging a vibrant repertoire for solo performance — drawn from traditional and modern jazz, blues, classical, Brazilian, folk, soul and contemporary artists.

Live and on his 2009 solo debut CD Better Late, his warm vibrant voice blends
effortlessly with his nylon-strung classically fingered guitar. Larry’s influences and songs
span a rich diverse range of vintage and modern artists – Mose Allison, Josh White, B.B.
King, Buddy Guy, Big Bill Broonzy, John Coltrane, Lightning Hopkins, Miles Davis,
Bruce Springsteen, Blossom Dearie, Julian Bream, Carlos Jobim, Gilberto Gil and Luis

Billy Novick, celebrated musician and producer of Better Late, says: “Larry definitely
makes the songs his own. But because he has such a deep knowledge, respect and love of
so many different types of music, the songs are all genuine, soulful, and different…
There’s no loss of a song’s emotion or integrity when Larry performs it. In fact, the songs
become much richer, because of his imaginative yet nuanced interpretations.”

  • Nice. Larry is an amazing guitarist and arranger. A nice guy too! Guitar is my main instrument and I love to watch him play. Definitely check out Larry!


  • Larry rocks! Larry’s a fairly recent transplant to Manchester, and we are *so* lucky to have him on Cape Ann. I have his CD and love it, he’s an inspiring guitarist/vocalist to hear. Looking forward to Sunday night at Giuseppe’s!
