Guitar and banjo player Larry Unger and fiddler Audrey Knuth are a Boston based traditional duo who play exhilarating tunes with driving rhythms. Their concerts feature American and Celtic tunes with elements of other traditions including swing and blues. They also draw from Larry's catalog of original fiddle tunes, which have been featured in several of Ken Burns' documentaries. Declared a "guitar genius" by Sing Out Magazine, Larry Unger joins fiddler Audrey Knuth in creating a stirring musical experience.
Larry Unger has been a full-time musician since 1984 and has presented a diverse range of musical performances across the United States, Europe, and Scandinavia. Hailing from Honolulu, Audrey moved to Boston in 2008 to attend Berklee College of Music and to explore the thriving New England folk scene. After graduating, Audrey has made a name for herself in the music community, namely as a dance fiddler and audio engineer.
Please check out their website littlederaudio.com/larry-and-audrey for more information about this exciting duo!
