Rich Mullins - The Irish Sweater Story
I wanted to share this story told by Rich Mullins during a concert in Lufkin Texas.
Rich was one of the most influential artist in Christian Music during the 1980's and the 1990's.
This concert clip, I believe, is from the final show of the tour prior to his death in September of 1997.
In 2014, Kid Brothers of St Frank and Millinnium Entertainment released a DVD about Rich's life titled 'Ragamuffin'.
Below if the description of the film from Amazon.com
'Ragamuffin' is based on the life of Rich Mullins, a musical prodigy who rose to Christian music fame and fortune only to walk away and live on a Navajo reservation. An artistic genius, raised on a tree farm in Indiana by a callous father, Rich wrestled all of his life with the brokenness and crippling insecurity born of his childhood. A lover of Jesus and a rebel in the church, Rich refused to let his struggles with his own darkness tear him away from a God he was determined to love. As he struggled with success in Nashville and depression in Wichita, Rich desired most of all to live a life of honest and reckless faith amidst a culture of religion and conformity.
