Masters of a little-known American musical tradition, the Campbell Brothers have helped establish sacred steel, a fusion of African American gospel with electric steel guitars and soaring vocals. Now, the group takes on John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme, a seminal recording that evidenced how Coltrane’s expansive musical innovations intertwined with his religious devotion. With their signature slide guitars and particular attention to the album’s transcendent spiritual message, this Philadelphia premiere offers “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)
Originally part of our season as an in-person performance, we have added a livestream due to overwhelming demand. However, unlike the other digital-focused livestreams, the in-theatre audience experience will be prioritized with regards to camera placement.
