Rev Lonnie Farris !
Lonnie Farris released 16 songs under his own name between 1962 and 1964.
His recordings are incredibly eclectic and draw from all sorts of musical influences.
Within this body of work, you’ll find booting saxophone solos, syncopated washboard percussion, and soulful vocalists. The one element holding all of these recordings together is Farris’ accomplished Hawaiian guitar.
He plays with an ease and freedom that is sometimes smooth as silk and sometimes bold and fiery.
He is definitely a unique performer in the annals of gospel music !

Btw, I might start a new blog dedicated to my crappy shitty music and performances (you know demos, pics – rev frost naked – gig dates etc…), you know, not to mix up with your favorite blog , I mean this one.
This one’s for glory, the other would be for gold, what do you think ? Let me know.
