There're a lot of folkies/bluegrassers and such who grew up in the Southern Baptist gospel tradition or something similar, who really love the music but not necessarily all the religion, and write music that may be secular but has that uplifing feel to it. Seven or eight years ago, a dive bar-music club in the East Village in NYC started "Sunday School for Sinners" for people who loved the music, for whatever reason to gather on Sun. afternoons. Kind of a well-know folk rocky band called Olabelle grew out of that.

And then there's this one. Steeleye Span, one of the foremost English folk-rock groups of the 60s and 70s doing an acapella old Latin Christmas carol, Latin pronounced with a strong English provincial accent, which I heard reached number 1 on the British pop charts, certainly an unlikely hit song.

@MontereyJack,
I was one of those Jack. A heathen singing Daniel Prayed by the Stanley Brothers.



Olabelle is a great group.

Had to say that I consider myself an agnostic, but strenuously avoid all forms of organised religion. However I love gospel music and much of the blues and soul music that has grown from it.

That said here's a track from the Reverend Al Green

All right I give up how do you embed a video here?

@MontereyJack,
Interesting, MJack, and makes a lot of sense to me.


I see I am responding to an oldish post.
