Phil Keaggy - Let Everything Else Go

Phil Keaggy is one of the finest guitarists you'll ever hear. A pioneer in the country-rock field with his band, Glass Harp, he toured with some of the top acts in the 1970s. Following his conversion to Christianity, he became a top artist in the emerging realm of Christian Rock. In the ensuing years, he has produced a stunning body of work and more recently, has gotten back together with Glass Harp for gigs--including some at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland--and at least one new CD. Last year, Keaggy released a wonderful collection of new early-rock style compositions with Randy Stonehill. That release, Mystery Highway, is worth checking out at iTunes.

Phil Keaggy is my favorite musician. He's an amazing talent, and such a gentle man, very unpretentious, very encouraging to other musicians. He's known as one of the world's great guitarists, and yet he is missing a finger on his picking hand.

I listen to Keaggy's instrumentals a lot when I'm meditating or reading the Word. They put me in the right frame of mind to focus on God.
