Profile: Larry Crandon- musician – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Larry Crandon, also known as Lawrence, is a quiet and unassuming man who chooses his words carefully. He is a thinker and a helper and many have benefi tted from his expertise as a construction engineer. But it’s in the world of music that Larry has found his niche and he takes great pride in sharing his music for all to enjoy.

Larry was born at Fyrish in Berbice, Guyana. His mom is Marina and his dad is Thomas. Larry is the third of nine children and he recalls that his parents were not only providers but that they worked hard to ensure that the family walked on the straight and narrow path.

Larry liked math and he remembers Ms. Baksh, Mr. Goberdhan and Mr. Farouk Juman as teachers who took an interest in him.   Continue reading
