Description

Chasco Fiesta Presents Bluegrass Night

featuring......

Larry Gillis and his Hard Driving Swampgrass Band

Preview

Larry Gillis 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."

This power ensemble of talented musicians can only be described as a hard-core, hard-driving, straight-up, traditional bluegrass band.  With a sound that comes from the deep south, and the admiration of the legends of bluegrass music, their style is one of a kind.
