WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Featuring The Campell Brothers and The Lee Boys The Campbell Brothers present Sacred Steel: A compelling, 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. This tradition is just now emerging from the House of God Keith Dominion Church, where for over sixty years it has been an integral part of worship and a vital, if little known, American tradition. The Lee Boys are one of Florida's finest African-American Sacred Steel Artists. The hottest movement on the music scene these days is the "Sacred Steel" sound that developed its roots in the House of God church. This church serves as the foundation from which these seasoned musicians developed and perfected their style, talents, and skills. There are six members who are brothers and nephews. Each member began making music in the church when they were 7 or 8 years old, and they have not stopped playing since.
