ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Larry Kaplan is a New England based singer and songwriter. Born in Boston and raised in Maine and Massachusetts, Kaplan is best known for his songs of New England which have been recorded both by himself and by a number of folk music artists and filmmakers since the 1970s.
A graduate of Bowdoin College in Maine, Kaplan first came to the attention of musicians and audiences in the mid-to-late 1970s after returning to Maine to work in a variety of jobs along the coast. It was during that time that he helped to sail then restore the historic schooner, The Bowdoin.
Kaplan himself has a clear tenor voice and unique guitar style, but he is best known for his song writing. His songs are traditionally based and notable for their lyricism and rich melodies. Many would be classified as ‘ballads’ and in fact, a number of his songs such as ‘Old Zeb’ or ‘Wreck of the Bay Rupert’ and ‘Song for Gale’ are often mistaken for traditional ballads.
Kaplan signed with Folk Legacy records in 1993 and his first CD ‘Worth All the Telling’ was issued later that year. A number of songs on this album including ‘Old Zeb’, ‘Song for Gale’ and ‘Song for the Bowdoin’ have not only received significant air play on folk radio stations in the US, Canada, and Europe, but also have been recorded and sung by a number of other artists, including Cindy Kallett, Bob Zentz, Gordon Bok, Anne Dodson and Cindy Mangsen.
His second Folk Legacy CD ‘Songs for an August Moon’ also on Folk Legacy, was released in April 2014 and like his first recording, has quickly gained considerable attention for its range of themes and its melodic and singable choruses.
He has performed at major folk venues in the United States, including, Café Lena, Ramblin Conrad’s, The Me and Thee, Trinity, Folkway, and U’N’I and Sounding Board coffee houses among others, and at a number of leading folk festivals including The Mystic Sea Music, Old Dominion, Eisteddfod, and Pinewoods Folk Music gatherings.
Kaplan’s songs have been used as soundtracks for short films, and fundraising efforts, and some have been sung in schools as far away as Labrador and Greenland.
His works also continue to be recorded and sung by many other artists in the US and increasingly in the UK and mainland Europe.
He is a popular performer touring internationally who engages his audiences encouraging their participation and always leaving them with a rich appreciation of the influence of traditional song on contemporary themes and melodies.
