Redemption Song

Abby Clutario

Won’t you help to sing these songs of freedom?

I stumbled on this lovely recording when browsing the facebook group ‘The Hippies Were Right’ – but that’s another story …

Let’s hear it for the Chapman Stick, an unusual 12 (or 10 or 8) string guitar-like instrument. Learn all about them at www.stick.com. No, I’m not on commission, but I did the searching so you don’t have to. I first heard a stick played live by the excellent Jim Lampi in about 1992 at the Rolls-Royce guitar club in Derby. Everyone was astonished at the sound and the musicianship.

And let’s hear it for Abby Clutario. She is a featured artist for Nord instruments, and from their web site we read

Abby Clutario is a Filipino multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger, best known as the vocalist, keyboardist, and Chapman Stick player of the progressive band fuseboxx, and world-fusion group, Humanfolk.
Her interest in music began at age 4. Throughout her formative years, she honed her musical talent in singing and playing the piano as a choir and music ministry member. To further discover her talents, she pursued a music degree in college, developing her musical abilities and immersing herself with a fusion of influences in classical music, pop, jazz and new age.

This song speaks for itself. You don’t need me to draw out some spiritual message. But maybe you can meditate on some scripture while you are listening – I’ve picked John 1:1-14.
