Rev. Edward W. Clayborn (he is often listed as just Edward Clayborn, with the surname sometimes spelled Clayburn or Claeburn) billed himself as "the Guitar Evangelist," and indeed he was, singing a kind of blues gospel not unlike the work of the better known Blind Willie Johnson. A brilliant guitarist and slide player, Clayborn recorded some 40 tracks for Vocalion Records between 1926 and 1930. ~ Steve Leggett, RoviPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
