About Playlist

The strangest and most wonderful byproduct of the Hawaiian music craze of the 1920s and '30s is that the lap steel guitar wound its way into some churches in the evangelical, African-American House of God denominations, specifically the Jewel and Keith Dominion churches. The portable electric lap steel and its larger cousin the pedal steel were not only part of the repertoire, they became the lead instrument, replacing the organ. The steel guitar in these churches was played in less of the loping, "slack key" style employed by Sol Hoopi and other Hawaiian greats, and in more of a revved-up way. The bent notes lent themselves to a call-and-response dynamic with the preacher and congregation, and a repertoire slowly built up. It’s revved-up in the best Pentecostal tradition, but unlike anything you’ve ever heard. If you like your gospel music charged with electricity—literally and figuratively—look no further! Featuring: Elder Utah Smith, Rev. Lonnie Farris, Willie Eason, Aubrey Ghent, the Campbell Brothers, Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Denise Brown, Katie Jackson, Sonny Treadway, and more.
