The Campbell Brothers Trio

$30 ticket/$20 students
Blues at the Garfield/Jazz Fest Combo ticket – $50 (for more info on the Chestertown Jazz Festival click here.)
The Campbell Brothers present Sacred Steel: African-American gospel music with electric steel guitar and vocal. 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. As the music moves from sanctuary to concert hall — including the Hollywood Bowl, the Kennedy Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music and Symphony Space — secular audiences are now able to appreciate a performance both devoted and rocking.
The Campbell Brothers present 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.
It’s a music filled weekend in Chestertown! Blues at the Garfield on Friday and the Chestertown Jazz Festival in Wilmer Park on Saturday – get a combo ticket for the entire weekend!
