I have been in the music business a long time,guitarist,pianist,vocalist,recording engineer and Vintage guitar and amplifer dealer to this day and I have to tell you this...You have a very rare and special gift of music that you share through your writing,singing,guitar playing and in your eyes and your smile. You make the world a little better place to be in by adding your heartfelt talents to it. It's great to know that you are out there sharing your gift of music. Thank you my friend.

Hi Laura - Just watched the "Let Us Begin" clip. As always, I am so moved by your presence, music, lyrics, and commitment to the possibility of us to be better people with the capacity to make a better world. I love you my dear friend.
September 30, 2012 @09:47 pm
Lara, thank you for your wonderful performance in Putnam tonight! You write beautiful, powerful messages and have the voice to really make it hit home...it game me chills. I'm totally sold and can't wait to catch more shows in the future! Be well, Hannah
June 23, 2012 @05:59 pm
Heard you for the first time, Lara, at the Women of Song Benefit Concert for Center for Women and Families in Bridgeport. Love your new CD and "Let Us Begin." Thanks for POSITIVE message. - Susan

I love the new album. Been playing it on my show Radio Wtih a View on wmbr, 88.1 fm, Cambridge, MA, wmbr.org. marc
February 15, 2012 @05:43 pm
Just returned from enjoying Lara. I appreciated hearing someone down home for a change; similar to the class of John Fogerty. She has it all. Not only is her voice gutsy, but the guitar, and interaction with the audience was top-shelf. That means priceless for those who don't tip the bottle.
February 02, 2012 @08:41 am
Love this song just love.........<3
November 27, 2011 @07:13 pm
Since you asked, would love the cd release to be in New Haven! Thanks for the inspirational thoughts about gratitude--always a good reminder. I also really love the Shawn Colvin song you referenced--"I Don't Know Why" I believe it's called. Wishing you joy and clarity as you finish the new cd and look forward to hearing it?! Linda
November 01, 2011 @07:58 pm

April 25, 2011 @07:53 am
Lara, I saw you for the very first time this April at FMSH... WOW! Maybe I should have said something more eloquent ... But....WOW! You blew me away... I am glad I saw you live Glad I bought your three c.d.'s... Glad I got To experience the positive energy you bring! You have yet another new fan!
January 17, 2011 @10:13 pm

January 08, 2011 @10:16 am
Lara: congratulations on the WONDERFUL video for "Letters." It's a beautiful visualization of the song and its message.
September 18, 2010 @07:54 pm
I am glad that I was able to help you today! It was nice meeting you, i like your music.
September 03, 2010 @03:12 am
Lara, I would just like to echo John Marshall's comments about Findochty - and add.... 'Wow! - that was astounding!" When are you coming back to see us?
August 29, 2010 @06:11 am
what a privelege! we were all knocked out in Findochty. thank you for the for the injection of peace and happiness. some things you can only dream about and thats one dream i dont want to wake from.

a friend at work told me about you and I looked you up online and listened to your short clips on your site and loved your voice and style, songs.. amazing! Cant wait to see you in person, possible at the NH Library. Thank you for sharing your gift with us.
March 18, 2010 @05:31 pm
Just getting to know a bit about your music and you......what a nice addition to the day!
March 13, 2010 @01:27 pm
Hi Lara, I was just browsing your website and as always, you touch me in really nice places. I'm glad you and your music is part of this world. Hope to see you on my next trip to the East Coast.
February 19, 2010 @02:03 pm
Heard your voice on the radio show today and am listening to you on your website.....amazing!!
January 21, 2010 @02:17 pm
Dear Lara, I so very much enjoyed your performance in Hartford @ First Night! It's only now that I've had chance to check your website and am delighted to know of your upcoming gig in Stafford on 1/31! Look forward to being there and hearing you again! "Connecticut Skies" really touched my heart, "blah, blah, blah" and your piece about being stopped by the cop warmed me with joy and laughter. I was kind of dragged to 1st night and am SO GLAD that my friend wouldn't take no for an answer, otherwise, I would have missed you. Thank you so much for that beautiful event. Sincerely, Ellen Griffing
January 18, 2010 @11:48 pm
Wonderful music, Lara! Hope to hear you live this year. All the Best, Don Sparks
January 07, 2010 @09:19 am

December 30, 2009 @12:17 am
hi Laura, just felt like dropping a comment to say hi. saw you in RI a couple months ago. enjoy getting your email updates and random thoughts. :) love your music!
December 19, 2009 @05:50 pm
Hey Lara! I just bought your guitar from Sam Ash in New Haven, replete with your stickered case. What a gorgeous guitar and fun to see it in the photos on your website. My buddy Tony Lombardozzi, a professional jazz guitarist, who I have known for decades. Thanks for passing it on ... Bob
December 06, 2009 @11:10 am
It's nice to find you on the internet. I'm happy to see you have been so successful in following your dream. Congratulations! Great songs and a terrific website.
November 17, 2009 @08:07 am
We met at recent NERFA. I was sketching her as she performed. Top notch performer, good poetry, good music. Very moving subject matter and I've been listening to folk music for over 50 years. Thanks for performing, you add beauty to the world.
November 06, 2009 @02:06 pm
LOVE the layout of your site. Very classy and easy to navigate. Plus the clips of your songs makes me want to hang around just to listen. Very nice.
September 27, 2009 @02:38 pm
Lara, That song, 'Drive' is excellent. In August I drove from Pennsylvania to Aspen, CO and it was so fine. I got to know the steering wheel like you mention. Thanks a lot. I'm looking to do some house concerts too.
September 17, 2009 @06:57 pm
Lara, I really enjoyed meeting you on the Grand Canyon hike. I love your sense of humor! I hope you received everything you sought and more - write a song for the Fab 5! Hope to see you in Ashland in November.
September 09, 2009 @10:45 pm
Lara, It was a privilege watching your outstanding performance at Acoustic Long Island this evening - thank you! Your depth, humor, intelligence and humanity really come through in your music. It was a pleasure to meet you, and I look forward to watching you perform again. In the meantime, I'll enjoy listening to your new CD. I wish you peace & love.
September 09, 2009 @09:24 am
I saw you last in Huntington LI and your were so-o-o very good. The real deal, as they say. I loved hope you engaged the audience and it inspired my performing. Strong songs and very diverse. Thanks
June 18, 2009 @12:50 pm
I loved the new CD! Well worth the wait! Charlie Brown Christmas Tree is my fav...keep up the great work! :-)
May 30, 2009 @01:09 pm
Thanks for sending the newest CD. I have been enjoying it and will be playing cuts on my show on WMUA. Very nice package.
May 11, 2009 @02:11 pm
Two weeks after an introduction from Garrison in Waterbury, we meet in person in Havre de Grace...something very Zen is going on here. "When you are ready to learn, the Teacher appears." I intend to be an honorable student of your awesome songwriting. See you in Waltham.
April 27, 2009 @01:13 pm
Lara, I heard your performance on Prairie Home Companion. Fantastic !!! ... and many congratulations to you. Don't think I'll be at Song School this year. Write on ! and again, so great for you !!!
April 27, 2009 @11:14 am
So happy to discover your music Saturday night at the Palace Theater. Garrison always treats his audience just right. I'll be looking forward to hearing your music again soon -
April 26, 2009 @09:57 pm
Wow! What a fabulous performance on PHC. You have a gorgeous voice. I am interested in having my daughter hear "Mirrors and Smoke" after a recent magician break up. Where can we find it? Thank you!
April 26, 2009 @01:30 pm
My husband and I saw you last night on PHC in Waterbury. We were both captivated by your voice! Wondering if you know Bill Walach? He plays a Blue Grass Concert for us every summer when we hike in the White Mountains.
April 25, 2009 @11:06 pm
Saw you in Waterbury this evening at the Prairie Home Companion taping and was blown away by your songs and performance. I am ordering both your cd's and hope you'll let me know when and where you will be performing again in CT. dk
April 25, 2009 @09:35 pm
Lara, I just saw your awesome performance tonight at the Palace Theater in Waterbury with the Prairie Home Companion show. You have a truly beautiful voice and a gift for composing. Thank you so much for giving Connecticut that wonderfully heart-touching song! I look forward to seeing more of your performances.
April 25, 2009 @07:53 pm
Lara, Such a treat to hear you on A Prairie Home Companion tonight! My first thought was that Vic would have loved it. He had a special place in his heart for you. Congratulations on well earned continued success.
April 22, 2009 @01:28 am
Hi Lara. I'm back,from not being with e-mail access for more than a month (AARRRGGHHHH!). As you can see from above, I now have a brand spanking new e-mail addy (I'm back with AT&T after a disaster-based stint with Comcast). So now, I can start receiving your e-shout out's about shows,etc. See you at a show soon. Be good.
April 13, 2009 @08:57 pm
My wife and I listened to your performance on WXPN Sunday April 12 and loved it. We look forward to hearing more of your great music!
April 12, 2009 @01:03 pm
I'll be listening tonight on xpn.org!!!!! Can't wait to see/hear what's new on your end.
April 11, 2009 @07:26 am
Hi Lara, Thank you so much for perfoming and helping to judge the 1st annual WoodSongs Singer/Songwriter Contest out here at the University of Connecticut. Live music is better than dead music, and I can not do it alone. The students all loved your set, and my wife and I will be at one of your shows very soon. Jim
March 21, 2009 @01:10 am
Hi, earlier I watched and heard your show with Noah at The Buttonwood Tree and thought . . . I can't get it all in one night, one version, from one chair, in the one voice you brought tonite. So . . . I'll have to find you again, hear the encore, and feel another dimension of you as you tell it, and play it to me in song.
March 09, 2009 @08:45 pm
Hey Kiddo, Still not much local I see. All the best for you as usual...
January 05, 2009 @08:43 am
Lara -- Saw you at first night in Morristown. Enjoyed every minute. A great tradition is being continued and I thank you for that. See you on the road!
November 08, 2008 @02:45 pm
Lara Thank you for performing last night at the University of Hartford for Music for a Change you are an amazing performer. I'm ecstatic that I was able to work with you yesterday evening, and thank you for the information on the book, "The Artists Way" as well as your CD's. I absolutely love them, and I can't wait for the new album to come out. I wish you all the best in your upcoming performances and I hope to keep in touch and work with you in the future. You're an astounding musician, and I hope I am able to attend more of your performances. Keep in touch! Sincerely, Ashley
September 28, 2008 @06:09 pm
J-E-T-S JETS, JETS, JETS. While you were playing today we ran up the score! ;)
August 30, 2008 @11:35 am
I am happy to find your site, and see all that you are doing! I was JUST in CT and missed your Bethel performance by a day or two!
July 30, 2008 @10:11 am
Still here, though the Summers are shorter and the Winters longer.
July 29, 2008 @12:28 pm
I really enjoy your music. I listened to some of it from your website. I understand you were at Telluride a while back; am thinking my brother-in-law may have driven you to Telluride from the airport. What a small world!! Great music!!
July 29, 2008 @12:22 pm
Enjoyed your music so much.
April 30, 2008 @11:39 am
Hi Lara, I look forward to seeing your show of "Horses Sing None of It". The view from behind the camera and the director talking in my ear distacted me. You are a pretty woman and the close-up shots that I did should prove that. You sang and played well. Thank you. Brad
October 14, 2007 @06:07 am
Hi Lara: Folk Alley's Open Mic did me a great favor by introducing me to your music. I've particularly enjoyed the "Random Thoughts" section of your web site. Would that these random thoughts were seen more as random "truths" and guides for living, we all might be in a better place. Anyway, I just wanted to express my appreciation for who you are, and for what you're doing. The last hour I spent listening to you on Folk Alley has been warm and wonderful. I'm sure my freinds and family are going to to en enjoy as much as I have. Not being sure when, or where, I can see you live, I'll just have to say, Hasta Pronto (I hope). Bill
August 15, 2007 @10:22 pm
Hey Lara, Love your music. Saw you perform at Acoustic Cafe in Bridgeport and Paperback Cafe in Old Saybrook. Am moving to Alexandria, VA soon and hope you make it down. I promise to round up some friends to come see you. Let me know or I'll keep checking your site. Good luck in Torrington. Lisa
August 10, 2007 @12:47 pm
I caught your set at the Acoustic Live tent at Falcon Ridge and really enjoyed it. Looking forward to hearing you at Sanctuary in October.
July 17, 2007 @10:20 pm
Hey Lara - Thanks for getting me on the mailing list, and thanks again for another beautiful performance at SolarFest this summer. Your Vermont fanbase continues to grow solid and strong! Peace, Hugh
June 20, 2007 @11:27 pm
Hi Lara -- I've lived in Florida for 4 years now and, believe me, living here has helped me appreciate what I no longer have. Remember that burning smell in late October when fireplaces came to life? Remember the sassiness and sarcasm that wafted its way up from New York and elsewhere? Remember real Christmas trees and houses large enough to absorb their radience? Remember the short-hand we spoke but everyone understood? Connecticut was never bland. People were sharp and motivated. Remember when keeping up with your landscaping really meant just keeping your grass cut? I remember how we shook our heads about the state of public education. Well, I've learned that CT has a lot to be proud of. Most of all, I miss my friends who will remain in CT.
May 10, 2007 @09:36 am
Now that i've heard your CD - juror number 13 i am truly sorry i missed your show at the Space in Hamden, CT. I will definitely make a journey to see you at one of your next venues. I'm spreading the Lara word to my friends, i'm even letting them borrow my CD. Kunonya ddembe, Awamu, Melissa PHillips Windsor, CT
May 03, 2007 @01:55 pm
You submit your CD to pandora.com...I listen to it often and it is a great way to get your music to be heard by people who might enjoy it.
April 27, 2007 @06:47 pm
Hi Lara, Don Graybill told me that he had been in touch and I just wanted to say hi from Bolivia. looks like you are doing well. I wish I could see you in Albany, but I am there one week later. I will see if my son is there and ask him to go. He is currently studying Spanish in Antigua. All best regards, gary
April 17, 2007 @03:39 pm
Lara, you rock mama! Looks like you're still kickin some bootie with that beautiful voice of yours. Just thought I'd poke my head in and say keep on truckin'. Peace, TLT
April 15, 2007 @06:08 am
Ciao Lara, grazie per aver scritto nel mio sito. Se vuoi potremmo scambiare i link all'interno. Io posso mettere il tuo link nel mio, tu il mio nel tuo. Fammi sapere. Un abbraccio e a presto

Lara, Just to let you know what a great honor it was to meet you and to experience your beautiful singing at the rehearsal at Tribes Hill "Central" and at the Solstice celebration on 12/17. You are indeed a special human being and I for one am a fan of yours, not just as a wonderful artist, but as a wonderful person...and friend. Dave Little Eagle, Heart Of Mother Earth Music

Saw you perform at the Northampton Starbucks and loved it as well as the conversation. Would love to see you perform again! Take it easy!
July 12, 2006 @11:45 pm
Hello, I just saw you perform at Northampton's Starbucks. You were amazing!!! I really loved your stuff and the conversation my friend and I had with you. You are one of, if not the most, nicest people I have ever met in my entire life. I will definately keep in mind what you said throughout my college career and I hope to see you perform again some time. Have a good one, ciao!

Hi Lara! Cindy just sent me your latest CD for my birthday! So great! I'm so proud of you for ALL you have accomplished! Where has the time gone?! You are too "little" to be doing all this! Blessings, Drew
March 26, 2006 @11:57 pm
I can't believe this is Lara Run!!! Hi, long time from Casablanca Morocco 1999 (workshop with Save the Children). I am astounded by your music career and love your voice and songs! I moved from Lebanon 3 years ago to work in Switzerland and to live closer to my partner. Will catch up later but for now, I just wanted to say what a wonderful surprise it was to see this website and hear you sing. Take care...and run! heba hage
March 22, 2006 @10:29 pm
I listened to Juror Number 13 this morning on my commute to work and I was utterly speechless. My heart was full, my eyes were welled...What an incredible piece of work this is. Your music is a delight - it is moving, funny, cultural, light and dark and so much more I don't have the words for. What a priviledge it is to hear and know your "voice" behind it all. Just unbelievably cool.
March 14, 2006 @10:39 am
LOVE your new release...Juror Number 13! Looking forward to hearing you live on 3/28...best of luck, it's excellent!
January 13, 2006 @02:58 pm

November 22, 2005 @04:03 pm
Ciao Lara, ti scrivo da Genova. Il tuo sito è molto bello ed ho sentito ora alcune tue canzoni e le ho trovate molto interessanti e graziose. Anch'io scrivo canzoni e a presto finirò il mio primo lavoro discografico. Speriamo di incontrarci. A presto, Andrea
September 07, 2005 @11:44 am
Hi Lara, You're website looks great! Your progression as a professional singer/songwriter is just wonderful to see. Sincerely, Jean
June 24, 2005 @01:07 am
Hi Lara, I am happy to find your site, and see all that you are doing! I was JUST in CT and missed your Bethel performance by a day or two! I am d/l'ing your album now and look forward to listening to it in the morning. I trust that this note will find you well. Best wishes from San Francisco, Hope (Berry)
June 01, 2005 @09:00 am
HI Lara: Beautiful website. Good job. Take care, Love Brunnie
May 31, 2005 @12:30 pm
Wonderful new look! Your creativity continues to amaze me. ;)
May 30, 2005 @09:24 pm
Hi Lara! Sounds like you are doing so well. I'm so proud of you. We are living in Sarasota, Florida now as are our two sons, their wives, and our 3 grandchildren. Some times I still miss Save. I hear great things have happened there. Much love, Loni
