Black Swamp Arts Festival fans were converted to a belief in the beauty of Sacred Steel back in 2005 when Calvin Cooke, an elder in the genre, played a Sunday afternoon.
Since then Cooke has returned to town several times. The festival has also hosted The Campbell Brothers and most recently Sacred Steel upstarts The Lee Boys.
This year promises a Sacred Steel summit session when The Slide Brothers hit the stage.
The band features a foursome of steel guitar — Cooke, Darick and Chuck Campbell and one of the legends of the music, Aubrey Ghent, the nephew of the style’s founder, Willie Eason, who with his brother Troman brought the steel guitar into the church in the 1930s.
