PK has impacted me profoundly, both as a musician and a Christian
man. Even though the Lord has
gifted him so greatly, his humility
prevails. He’s a rock-star without
the rock-star attitude. He has so
many albums, I couldn’t even
recommend one over another.
He covers so many styles, and
all with 9 fingers. Phil plays Olson guitars, as does James Taylor.
He is the original master looper. He's been prominent since the Jesus movement era. He has played with so many other artists on their records, I doubt whether anyone has been able to keep track. He is one of the greats
of all time, without question.
All except the first photo in this group are from a December, 2007 concert in Largo, FL at Grace Christian Fellowship, Randy Evans' church.
The first photo is from 2006, same place.
I was in a poor shooting position that first year and only got a couple
of shots but the pastor's wife liked one I ultimately titled "Outside The Box",
I think because it showed off their magnificent stained glass window. She had a 16"x20" framed as a birthday gift for her husband to hang in his office.
If I remember right, I first saw Phil Keaggy at a concert out in the sticks someplace hours away. I can't even guess the year. Mylon LeFevre and Broken Heart also played. Phil played by himself, but I can't remember who opened for whom. After the concert, there might have even been an alter call, but there was definitely a prayer time. I went up for prayer as a divorced and mess of a man. Phil prayed for me personally on this occasion and a few times down the road.
At another concert, the emcee introducsed him as Phil Driscoll, another Christian artist. The crowd was rude, booing and such, and PK rebuked the crowd and set
things straight. It's exactly what Yeshua would have done.
In 2007, they reserved me a seat at front center and it made a huge difference in what I was able to capture.
