LACONIA — Blues Legend Larry Garner will perform at Pitman's Freight Room at 94 New Salem Street in downtown Laconia on Saturday October 4 at 8 pm.
Admission is $20 in advance and $25 at the door and Pitman's is a BYOB venue.
Garner, who is perhaps the most talented blues songwriter alive today, one of the top five bluesmen on the planet.
"I started playing guitar because I had an uncle, George, who taught me. He was a paraplegic, and he played like Jimmy Reed. I learned through him, and started playing at the church and behind a gospel group that played on the radio.''
Garner continued playing music during his military service, and playing in army bands while stationed in Korea steeled him for the life of a full-time musician. "I'm on tour all the time," he says. "I go to Europe and England a few times a year. Over there they really like my original stuff. They hear guys playing the blues, but when I come in, they come right up and say, 'Thank God — a real blues band."
Catered dinner available before the show. Call 527-0043 for details and reservations.
