The rarest of things, a musician beloved of the hard-core political folk music crowd who's unapologetic about his Christian faith. Huge stage presence, off-the-charts musical chops: there's a bit of Bruce Cockburn in the mix, a bit of Michael Hart, and all the echoes of those Welsh revivals and Welsh singers and Brit folk-revival passion. The guy is simply astonishing in performance.
