Purchase tickets >>

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. Recognized as an American Masterpiece artist, as their music moves from sanctuary to concert hall—including the Hollywood Bowl, the Kennedy Center, and Brooklyn Academy of Music— secular audiences are now able to appreciate a performance both devoted and rocking. Pedal steel guitarist Chuck Campbell (National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellowship, 2004) and his lap steel-playing brother Darick are two of the finest in this tradition. Rounding out the band, which has been playing together for nearly two decades, is a high-energy rhythm section featuring brother Phil Campbell on electric guitar, son Carlton on drums, and Katie Jackson’s classic, gutsy gospel vocals.

"steel guitar moaned and wailed intensely" New York Times
