We are proud to have the one and only Reverend Freakchild as our guest this week! In the tradition of such Holy Blues Reverends as Reverend Gary Davis – such is the irreverent Reverend Freakchild. The Rev. primarily performs solo acoustic these days but has also recently recorded with some amazing musicians including Melvin Seals, Mark Karan, Chris Parker, Hugh Pool, Jay Collins and Grammy nominated G. Love, and The Reverend Shawn Amos. Check out the latest Albums “The Bodhisattva Blues” & “Supramundane Blues”
The Rev. has served as a member and featured soloist of the Metro Mass Gospel Choir performing at such venues as Carnegie Hall, Avery Fischer Hall and the Town Hall Theater. The Rev. also spent 3 years off-off-off Broadway singing blues and spirituals on Sundays at Tobacco Road, the now defunct NYC hippie hangout replete with drug addicts, hookers and music freaks.
We sit down with the good Reverend and talk about being a closet Deadhead, the power of the blues, finding oneself within the walls of a mental hospital, the slippery road of LSD, how Buddhism and his music go together, and a whole lot more!
