Bluegrass Gospel favorites The Churchmen have announced the addition of guitarist/vocalist David Guthrie to their lineup. David had been a member of Lorraine Jordan and The Carolina Road Band, and has a solo Gospel CD of his own, Man Of God, released in 2004.
While they welcome David to The Churchmen family, the band also shared some kind words for departing member, Charlie Oakley.
The Churchmen like to say thanks to Charlie Oakley who was with the band during 2006. Charlie is a great blessing to our group and we really regret that his work schedule will no longer allow him to continue as a full time member of the band.
The current edition of The Churchmen is now Freddy Rakes (banjo/vocals), Gerald Harbour (mandolin/vocals,) Keith Clark (bass/vocals), Ricky Keen (dobro) and Guthrie (guitar/vocals).
