Podcast Extra: Joel Edwards

This month’s smallVOICE ‘A Thousand Words’ interviewee, the Rev Dr Joel Edwards, surprised us all by choosing a photo of his Gibson Les Paul guitar as the image he wanted to talk about. You can listen to what he had to say here: https://www.smallvoice.org.uk/a-thousand-words-joel-edwards/

In this very short Podcast Extra for Black History Month, taken from the same interview, Joel talks some more about his pioneering role in Black Gospel Music in the UK, with ‘The Sounds of Zion’ and ‘Kainos’.

Duration: 3’39 minutes

There’s a YouTube clip of Kainos playing at Greenbelt in 1979 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1u5DreyR6U
