Larry Kernagis 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’s students say:

“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.”
“I really feel like I improved and am now able to jam with almost anyone.”
