Local Talent: The “Golden” Baritone – Larry Gowell

Larry Gowell Profile

One of my favorite Christmas carols is Silent Night.  It’s a song that to me has always sounded best when sung by a deep rich voice, and local Auburn resident – and former Yankees pitcher – Larry Gowell has the baritone to do it justice.  Click the link below to hear this haunting Christmas staple wonderfully performed by Larry Gowell.

We like to give local talent a chance to show off their stuff at our conferences, and were thrilled to have baritone Larry Gowell as the lead entertainment at the Greater Androscoggin Landlords & Real Estate Investors Conference in May.

Larry, an Edward Little High School graduate (Auburn ME) and former pitcher for the New York Yankees has been in great demand lately – and for good reason.  He is blessed with what’s been called a “golden” baritone voice.

We could talk on and on about Larry (who is also an amazingly nice person), but figure that instead, we’ll let others tell his story.

First, in his own words from his Facebook page:

“Life is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you are going to get.”

“Music is what sustains me and makes life rich and sweet no matter what downfalls I face.”

“I was born and raised in Auburn, Maine. I graduated from Edward Little High school in 1967 and was drafted by the New York Yankees as a fourth round draft pick as a pitcher. I went on to make the major leagues club in 1972. In 1975 I was released from baseball and got hired as an insurance agent that year.”

“I have two adopted children, Crystal and Maurice and my son Chad Holland who lives in Burlington, North Carolina. He is the head coach of Graham High School.”

“I have a very outgoing personality and get along very well with most folks.”

“My goal is to become much more active in sports and music as I go into my retirement years.”

By googling “Larry Gowell pitcher”.

You’ll get quite a few hits when you google Larry, including this one from Wikipedia:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Gowell

Larry was interviewed by Bill Green on Bill Green’s Maine this past May.

If you’re looking for quality local talent for an upcoming event, you should absolutely consider engaging Larry.   He doesn’t know I’m posting this blog about him (although he will shortly!), so I don’t feel comfortable giving out his email address or phone number, but if you want to contact me, I’ll make sure he gets the message.
