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.
