Sister Rosetta Tharpe : Up Above My Head

I've been in a real guitar mood recently so this week's wake up song features the legendary guitarist and singer-songwriter Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Blending Rock n'Roll and gospel she influenced many, many artists not least Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Aretha Franklin ! Her playing is wonderful and the age of the clip makes the guitar sound even better ! Love tt
