Robert Randolph and The Family Band perform Aug. 10


The Meridian Star

MERIDIAN —     In House of God churches since the 1930s, it’s been known as sacred steel. In the hands of pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph, it’s become a bridge between modern American funk/soul and the ancestral songs of more than a century ago.

    “We Walk This Road,” the most recent studio album by Robert Randolph and The Family Band, features both secular and religious tunes, covers and originals, all bound together with an uplifting message of hope.

    Robert Randolph and The Family Band will appear at the MSU Riley Center, 2200 Fifth St., on Friday, Aug. 10, at 7:30 p.m.

    A pre-show party starts at 6 p.m.

    Tickets are $46-$52. Call (601) 696-2200 or visit the website www.msurileycenter.com.
