Larry Richardson (August 9, 1927- June 17, 2007) was an American bluegrass and old time banjoist and guitarist from Galax, Virginia. He is known for his work with the Lonesome Pine Fiddlers, Bill Monroe and His Bluegrass Boys, and the Blue Ridge Boys. In 1956, Larry was featured on a record that changed the way many people hear and play the banjo. "American Banjo Scruggs Style" (Folkways Records FA-2314) which showcased the many banjo players who had adopted Earl Scruggs' famous "three finger roll" style of picking. On the record, Richardson played a rousing and inventive version of "Little Maggie" that influenced any number of up-and-coming banjo players in the late 1950s. Soon after the release of this record, Larry relocated to Low Gap, North Carolina. From the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s Larry recorded with the Blue Ridge Boys who focused on a traditional bluegrass sound.-- Wikipedia
