The late Darick Campbell was the youngest brother in the award winning group the Campbell Brothers, the foremost practitioners in the Sacred Steel tradition. Darick started out as a drummer, but he later took up the lap steel and became one of its leading players. Along with his brothers and their ensemble, Darick’s music moved from its origins in the House of God Church, Keith Dominion, to secular audiences throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and North America.
The Campbell Brothers have performed at the Hollywood Bowl, Kennedy Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and the Festival of World Sacred Music in Morocco. Their CDs are on Arhoolie Records.
Sadly Darick died of complications of heart surgery in June 2020.
