Duo – Carla Metz / Larry Acunto
Carla’s vocal style developed through a variety of work over 20 years, beginning with her favorite, the classic standard, sung from the crook of a piano at a “speakeasy” near Boston Massachusetts. She worked throughout New England with duos, trios and full bands in establishments both luxurious and questionable! Her exposure to so many types of music - and her first love, the classic standard - find her, and those who listen, enjoying music from the past with a contemporary flair and a few surprises from the present. Larry has been playing one instrument or another for over four decades including performing with such luminaries as Steve Howe (Yes), Ian McDonald (King Crimson/Foreigner), Gene Cornish (Rascals) and others. He has settled on the guitar (and occasionally the bass guitar and ukulele) to support the magnificent song styling's of Carla. This "Duo" found each other about a year ago after each moved into the Albany and Saratoga area. Friends of Duo speak not only of their musical diversity, but also about the ease at which the two musicians work, and the laughter that winds the tunes together. Come and enjoy!
