I grew up listening to Larnelle Harris, so I was excited when I found out about his new memoir co-written with Christine Schaub. Shaped Notes is the story of how ordinary people in Larnelle’s life influenced him and helped shape him into who he is. In the book he reveals painful incidents from his past as well as turning points in his career. Reading about his past gave me an even greater appreciation for his music and his testimony.  If you’re like me and grew up with Larnelle’s music, you’re going to want to get a copy of Shaped Notes to get a behind the scenes glimpse into his life and ministry. 

After reading Larnelle’s story, I was even more excited to find out he’d be attending NRB convention, and I’d have the opportunity to interview him. He turned out to be just as gracious and kind in person as you’d expect. He’s also very funny, as you’ll see in our interview.

For those of you in the Louisville, Kentucky area, Larnelle will be doing a Meet and Greet book signing on March 10. He’ll also be in concert with Sandi Patty on June 22, and the Sandi Patty and Friends Alaska cruise in July.
