“It’s a soul-stirring blend of gospel and the power and volume of electric blues and rock, a sound as hot as brimstone that kicks holy butt.” -NPR

Masters of a little-known American musical tradition, the Campbell Brothers have helped create a unique steel guitar-driven sound called sacred steel: African American gospel with electric steel guitars and soaring vocals. This year marks the 50 th anniversary of John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme , a seminal recording that showcases his innovation as well as his spiritual devotion. The Campbell Brothers revisit this important work by one of the all-time greats of jazz in a musical union that is spiritually uplifting, virtuosic and most of all – hard rockin’.

The group features Chuck Campbell, a National Heritage Fellow and “the Jimi Hendrix and Django Reinhardt of the steel guitar” (Real Blues), and his brothers Darick and Phil, along with a rhythm section.
