The Campbell Brothers present “Sacred Steel”: African American gospel music with electric steel guitar accompanying the vocals. This tradition is just now emerging from the House of God Keith Dominion Church, where for sixty years it has been an integral part of worship. As the music moves from sanctuary to concert hall-the group has appeared at the Hollywood Bowl, the Kennedy Center and the Brooklyn Academy of Music-secular audiences are able to appreciate a performance both devotional and rocking. The Campbell Brothers present a rich variety of material from the African American Holiness-Pentecostal repertoire with a new twist: the growling, wailing, shouting, singing and swinging voice of the steel guitar, played as you have never heard it played before.
A part of the 2009/2010 Winter Performance Series, sponsored by Gail and Jack Thornton.
Tickets available ONLY through the Sun Valley Center for the Arts.
