Larry Kernagis (Mt. Juliet, TN) was raised during the folk revival era of the 60s, cutting his chops on Flatt & Scruggs and the Kingston Trio. Eventually, he became a banjo instructor at the famed Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago. Larry has led bluegrass jams at festivals across the country for the past 30 years. He now employs his banjo, guitar and vocal skills entertaining with “greengrass” Celtic group Def Leprechaun.

“Larry was an excellent instructor. Patient and kind, he brought the music to life and gave me the tools to do the same.”
“Larry encouraged us to try and get beyond our fears and try different things. He is very patient.”
“When I was young I was a classically trained violinist, but Larry taught me to play music with the other half of my brain…It’s been a great experience.”
“Larry Kenagis is a true educator. He understands the motivational and instructional needs of an adult learner.”
“Teaching style was perfect. Was able to shift gears to help the advanced and newbies alike.”
“I believe Larry must be your premier instructor. I can’t see how someone could be better.”
“There were lots of returnees like me–that’s the best testament of the value of the program and how much people are liking Larry and Cindy doing the programs.”
“Larry is a fantastic teacher. He is very attentive to students and always recognized something each student did well. After each song he expressed genuine excitement on how well we sounded. That made us feel more confident and motivated to ‘Dare to Suck!’.”
