LARRY OLSEN

Bandleader Larry Olsen owns seven Hengel concertinas and has lived in the Lake Benton (Minnesota) area his entire life; now living only 2 miles from the farm where he grew up. At age 11 Larry started playing concertina. Before forming his own band in 1982, (THE LARRY OLSEN SHOW), Larry played guitar with THE MARV NISSEL BAND. In 1984, Larry's dad, Arnold, joined Larry's band as drummer and Larry's sister, Lisa, played piano. Larry later added a guitar and horn player when Lisa left for college. When Larry isn't busy with his band, his 2,000 acre farming operation located just east of Lake Benton occupies most of his time. Larry's wife, Brenda, also keeps busy owning Perfect Styles in Marshall along with Larry's sister Lisa, and helping in the fall with the farming.

Every Memorial Day weekend, Larry and Brenda sponsor and host a four day ANNUAL MUSIC FEST at their farm with the aid of about thirty volunteers. The 2014 21st ANNUAL MUSIC FEST will be held over the Memorial Day Weekend; May 21, 22, 23, 24.
