Jen Larson

I am a Brooklyn-based, bluegrass and honky-tonk singer, songwriter and rhythm guitarist. I also have a deep love of jazz, blues and British and Appalachian folk ballads. From 2000-2011, I played and recorded with the bluegrass band, Straight Drive. We performed from Carnegie Hall to the Wheeling Jamboree, and shared festival stages with some of the greats, including Doyle Lawson, Jessie McReynolds, The Osborne Brothers, Ronnie Reno and Dan Paisley.

I've also had the pleasure of appearing several times on Garrison Keillor's nationally-broadcast weekly radio program, "A Prairie Home Companion." Most recently, I can be found performing in and around NYC with Miller's Crossing, a Long Island-based bluegrass group led by Marjorie Kelting, and I also perform with my own ensemble, Jen Larson & Deep River. I'm as much a fan as I am a performer, and I have a tremendous amount of respect not only for the history and accomplishments of the powerful first-generation artists who defined the genre, but also for those who carry bluegrass and American roots music forward into the 21st century.
