In 1966, Larry Ahearn landed at Villanova University and immediately began working at the nearby Main Point in Bryn Mawr, PA. For 11 years he was an integral part of all aspects of Main Point operations, booking promoting and producing many of the now legendary shows that took place at the Main Point in its “golden years.”
Throughout that period he also began to write and perform his own music as a solo artist, and later, with the Larry Ahearn Group (Tom Crosthwaite, Bill Cannon, Bill Shultz, Chris Shannahan, Dan Rossi). He has shared the bill with artists like Tom Rush, Jimmy Buffett, Livingston Taylor, Jaime Brockett, Janis Ian, Elvin Bishop, Velvet Underground, Sha Na Na, Spider John Koerner, Eric Andersen, Good News, Blood,Sweat & Tears, Pearls Before Swine and John Prine.
After years of booking, promoting and producing music, sports and theatre, most notably as a team member with the worldwide Concerts For Human Rights tour with Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Youssou N’Dour and Tracy Chapman, Larry found himself in Hong Kong China in 2003, 4/5 with the Harlem Globetrotters. He’s back in the U.S.A now and has returned to his first love: writing and performing songs in an intimate atmosphere – Full Circle.
Larry also manages Craig Bickhardt, an extraordinary performing songwriter whose credits are too numerous to mention here, and now works with Trespass Music. www.CraigBickhardt.com
