About Us

Larry Fogel
was born in Miami, Florida USA, and came to Israel with his family at the age of 12. Larry's affection for folk music began in 3rd grade literature class, when he was taught one of Simon & Garfunkel's tunes - "Feelin' Groovy". At the age of 11 he started taking guitar lessons with a "free style" teacher. Larry also took to the piano at home and developed his talent on both instruments. He started performing in parties during high school. During his mandatory military service in the Israeli Air Force he was always with a guitar ready for social entertainment. When he was released from the army, Larry began performing at clubs in Tel Aviv like "Briza", the "Asam" (managed by Matti Caspi and Arik Sinai), the "Bikta" and other popular places singing songs by Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, Don McLean, James Taylor, Crosby Stills Nash & Young and more. Afterwards, Larry dropped performing for a very long time to build a career in hotel/tourism/retail management, and to raise a family. In 2003, he returned to the music scene and started performing at Folk Clubs around the country, where American folk music is played and sung, including taking part in the "Jacob's Ladder" bi-annual folk festival. Between 2004 and 2011 he also appeared with Moni Arnon (from the "Brothers and Sisters" Israeli group) in a successful "Simon & Garfunkel" tribute show.
