In honor of Martin Luther King Day, I have recorded my recent meditative arrangement of a well known Negro Spiritual “Were You There?" Played on a Ribbecke Testadura electric guitar. Thanks for taking a listen! Ken

“Another Hallelujah”—Lincoln Brewster’s version of the late Leonard Cohen's song "Hallelujah.” I’ve always wanted to play it on a guitar like this Tom Ribbecke Testadura. Thanks for taking a listen!

A great old gospel song my late wife Jennifer and I performed several times prior to her passing in 2009. It words brought great peace to us both during those difficult years, such that it seemed appropriate to dust it off and re-learn it once again. Written by Kate Peters Sturgill around the mid 1920s, just a few years before this ole 0-42 Martin guitar was born! Thanks for listening, and deep settled peace to all, Ken

An invitation and for God to "come by here." According to an article in Kodaly Envoy by Lum Chee-Hoo, some time between 1922 and 1931, members of an organization called the Society for the Preservation of Spirituals collected a version from the South Carolina coast. "Come by Yuh", as they called it, was sung in Gullah, the creole language spoken by the former slaves living on the Sea Islands of South Carolina and Georgia, as well as The Bahamas. The Gullah phrase Kumbayah ("Come By Here") became known throughout the United States and worldwide by its inclusion in "Kumbayah", a song of the same name. Most who sing it are unaware of its linguistic antecedents. Yet the song has a rich history throughout the folkmusic and gospel era, inviting the presence of the Creator to come alongside, whatever our circumstance, and we'll be ok! Kum By Yah Lord, and blessings to all! Ken

My Reggae version of Ecclesiastes 3:1-9 from the sacred writings of the Holy Scriptures. I guess that also makes it my take on the great folk song from the late Pete Seeger "Turn, Turn, Turn!"
