Bluegrass in the Park

Larry Gillis

Swampgrass Band

 comes from a little town called Soperton, located 
in southeast Georgia.  He was raised on backwoods music and 
was especially influenced by his father to play the five string 
banjo.  He developed a style reminiscent of Don Reno and Ralph 
Stanley, although plainly it is Larry’s own sound.  One half of the 
legendary Gillis Brothers, Larry continues with his music career in 
bluegrass.  A world renowned banjo picker, and one of the few 
who still plays the old claw hammer style.  He definitely has a 
traditional style of his own.  2015 will mark thirty-five years in the 
business for Larry and truly justifies the title "Dr. Swampgrass 
Gillis".
