The Campbell Brothers

In memory of lap steel-player Darick Campbell, who passed away earlier this month, WXXI brings you the Campbell Brothers' OnStage performance shot at WXXI's studio in 2007.

Campbell brothers – pedal steel guitarist Chuck, lap steel-player Darick, and electric guitarist Phil, along with Phil’s son Carlton on drums and gutsy gospel vocalist Katie Jackson make up this high energy gospel group that presents a compelling, rich variety of material from the African-American Holiness-Pentecostal repertoire. They joined WXXI in studio in 2007 to perform before a live, studio audience. OnStage: The Campbell Brothers airs Sunday, May 24 at 3 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

Produced by WXXI, OnStage gives curious music fans the chance to see and hear the talent Rochester reveals on any given night in the City.

OnStage host Julia Figueras, Classical 91.5’s own music director, uses her musical expertise to guide the way for these live-to-tape one-hour concerts. Diverse musical performances interspersed with intimate interviews and compelling stories makes this examination of Upstate New York music culture fresh and electrifying.
