2024 Levitt National Convening
Saturday, January 27 at 3:30 p.m.
Orpheum Ballroom | Hotel Indigo
Larry Bellorín hails from Monagas, Venezuela and is a legend of Llanera music. Joe Troop is from North Carolina and is a GRAMMY-nominated bluegrass and oldtime musician.
Currently based in the Triangle of North Carolina, both men are versatile multi-instrumentalists and singer-songwriters on a mission to show that music has no borders. As a duo they perform a fusion of Venezuelan and Appalachian folk music on harp, banjo, cuatro, fiddle, maracas, guitar, and upright bass, inspiring joy and unity.
The program they offer, en ingles y espańol, features a distinct blend of their musical inheritances and traditions as well as storytelling about the ways that music and social movements coalesce.
Larry & Joe have toured extensively throughout the U.S., most recently at The Kennedy Center. They have also performed on Levitt AMP stages in Berea, Ky., Colusa, Calif., and Harrisonburg, Va. The duo was recently interviewed by NPR; listen to the “Talkin’ Music” segment here.
