Larry Shrek at the Newmarket Farmers' Market Saturday 9/12

Larry Shrek (actually spelled Schroeck) will be performing this Saturday for market goers at the Newmarket Farmers' Market September 12th.

He lives in
Kittery, Maine and has been a professional singer/songwriter since 1991.

His sound has been compared to Greg Brown, James Taylor, and Gordon Lightfoot.

He scored his first si
nging gig at 10 years old, making $1.50 a week as a choir boy in southwest Florida. After trumpet and baritone in secondary school, he started playing guitar in college and what began as a hobby soon became a necessity. He has since developed a contemporary folk style all his own, influenced by the myriad of sounds he grew up with, but clearly unique and straight from his soul.

Performing began at a coffee house in the New Y
ork City area, which quickly led to full time gigging and a musical migration from Florida to New England playing parks, festivals, taverns, tiki bars, restaurants, town centers, community fairs, parties, weddings, charity events, churches, and other venues along the way. His shows feature his original material peppered with personally arranged cover and traditional tunes sung in a rich baritone voice and accompanied by standard as well as baritone acoustic guitar.
Larry Shrek’s latest recording, The Good Life (2008), is an acoustic blend of originals and uniquely arranged covers. (Click on cover photo to hear the music.) Guests include Rushad Eggleston (Crooked Still) on cello, Lincoln Meyers on flat-picked lead guitar, Bob Halprin,on lead guitar Tom Dean on lead guitar, Kent Allyn on bass, Joe Rogers on percussion, and Bruce Stelter on mandolin. For more information, contact Larry.
