Larry and Leslie Latour's new CD, 'That's Life' is a collaborative singer/songwriter effort that includes songs about love, little things, airports, schooners, unhappy baseball players and unhappy songwriters, songs of faith, loves lost, jobs lost, pink flamingoes, and friends like we. In other words, that's life! Larry Latour has been bringing his own personal brand of contemporary folk music to folk sings and coffeehouses in the Mid-Maine area since moving to Maine from New York City in 1985. He writes songs in the traditional folk spirit, singing about family, friendship, struggle, and a few cats thrown in for good measure. His music is a window into his musical soul. Leslie Carol Latour is a singer/songwriter and artist. She grew up in a family of musicians and artists in Bronxville, NY and Hamden, Conn. Raised on the music of Joan Baez, Peter, Paul, and Mary, and Pete Seeger, she is equally at home with traditional folk music and the early folk rock of the Beatles, Bee Gees, and Carol King. Larry and Leslie are members of the traditional folk group Generations, and Leslie's song 'There'll Always Be Me' has become a Generations theme song. Her song 'Making Paper From The Wood' is a gift to the paper mill workers of Maine. They have helped to found and run a number of open mike coffeehouses and actively volunteer in the community. They live in Bangor, Maine with four cats in the yard. As Graham Nash sings, 'A very, very, very, nice house.'
