When Rachel Manke — a Lutheran pastor — sings “It’s a Sin to Tell a Lie,” you believe her.

The uke star appeared on Prairie Home Companion last June and, in the above video, is joined by longtime host Garrison Keillor.


Listen closely for Manke’s lyrical tweak to the popular 1936 song (“you better text me back boy”), and catch her at the upcoming Ashokan Uke Fest, May 27-30 in the Catskill Mountains.
