“Last night the White Springs Folk Club featured Larry Mangum, Charley Simmons and John R. Butler. The performance exceeded expectations, which were high already, because Larry Mangum’s Songwriters Circles always delight the audience. Larry, a huge talent in his own right, is a selfless individual. Larry’s song writing skills and his God-given warm and mellow voice, along with his friendly “I’ve know this guy all my life” stage presence and his high performance skills, have given him the spotlight and longevity that eludes many “folk singers”. With all his talent, he would certainly be entitled to an artistic ego, and as a solo performer Larry can carry the audience and the show to a very special musical place. But Larry is different! He concentrates more on promoting the art of folk music and the other artists more than he does on promoting himself, thus his fondness for the songwriters circle format, and thus our magnified fondness for Larry Mangum. Simply the best”
