Reverend Freakchild performs in WOUB's Studio A

Bluesman Reverend Freakchild stopped by the studios of WOUB on his way back home to New York City.

Freakchild has been on a cross-country road trip performing and promoting his new recording of old tunes, Chaos and the Country

Although he writes and performs his own blues-inspired music, this most recent release is a collection of classics penned by country blues giants Willie Dixon, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Lightnin’ Hopkins and others.

The Reverend played a couple of those chestnuts on his National Resolectric guitar and expounded to WOUB’s Mark Hellenberg on the blues, the Buddha and a Lakota contrarian shaman.
