On Saturday April 20th, The Larks played a 90 minute morning set at the 10th annual Pork In The Park National BBQ Cookoff and Festival. This three day affair featured headliner Marshall Tucker Band and has become the largest BBQ competition on the East Coast. The weather was brisk, overcast with a breeze and in the 50's, but the audience was great and the band was hot!

It's just one week to go until The Larks return to the site where our most recent live album was recorded at one of the largest music festivals on the Mid-Atlantic coast.
Join us as we reprise that special evening and turn the musical offerings up another notch with a few new originals and covers as well as exciting updated versions of our favorites.
The world famous Dogfish Head Brewpub is the place to be on Thursday night for this year's Rehoboth Jazz Festival. It's the unofficial after-party location for the opening night of jazzfest - so we never know who might show up and sit in.
The Larks are proud to announce a brand new digital release. It's the Big River Jam Music Festival bootleg! Seven funky tracks played on the banks of the mighty Pocomoke River in Snow Hill, MD. Thanks go out to Michael Dryden for organizing the show to benefit the Snow Hill High School performing arts scholarship.
And the best part is that you get to decide what the music is worth. Want it for ten bucks? We love you. Want it for free? We still love you. We just hope you rock it out!
Here is the first of many new videos recorded during the taping of our new album. This first one is a song by the New Orleans trumpet player Christian Scott called Like This. You can check out more videos on our Video page or our YouTube channel. Enjoy!
A big thanks to Brian Daniels and WESM 91.3FM in Princess Anne, MD for playing tracks off our new album. So far we've heard the Miles Davis cover All Blues, the Charlie Parker cover Au Privave, and my original Pesto! Please take a moment to call the station (410-651-8001) and ask for more Larks! We'll love you for it!
The Larks are thrilled to announce the release a new live album! The music was recorded during the 2010 Rehoboth Jazz Festival and captures the essence of what The Larks experience is all about. The energy in the room that night was electric and it translates well on to the recording. The highlight is a more than 18 minute jam of the Curtis Mayfield anthem "Pusher Man" into the Herbie Hancock funk classic "Cantaloupe Island." The CD contains nearly 79 minutes worth of music.
