We are thrilled to have the Gospel Choir back in action for 2023!
Below is a bit about the man who will lead us all in song as we celebrate the return of the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Gospel Choir!!
Lloyd Buchanan is rooted in Gospel and the Blues. His connection to the Hammond organ began at a very early age in church accompanying his mother. This indoctrination gave way to formal studies at LaGrange College where he expanded his musical vocabulary going deep into jazz improvisation under the tutelage of pianist/composer, Randy Hoexter and guitarist, Trey Wright. Lloyd has been a first-call session player at the Loft Recording Studio as well as numerous other facilities throughout the southeast. His B3, piano, bass and vocal chops can be heard on hundreds of recordings. As an educator and clinician, Lloyd served as jazz accompanist at LaGrange College and as Guest Artist in Residence at Columbus State University.
