VictoriaghostAshley and Shannon Campbell –protégés of their father Glen Campbell–and guest Will Carter blend old time favorites and unpredictable elements to create a fresh sound that breaks the mold when Victoria Ghost play Carlsbad’s Museum of Making Music on Saturday, March 29, 2014.

Victoria Ghost is a country duo years in the making. At a very young age, siblings Ashley and Shannon Campbell became proteges of their legendary father, Glen Campbell. Quickly becoming gifted musicians in their own right, the sister and brother team extensively toured the world on Glen Campbell’s “Goodbye Tour” both as the opening act and as part of Glen’s band. Watching their father sell out venues and melt hearts, Ashley and Shannon knew they were destined to create a new sound rooted in classic elements that the music world adores.

General seating tickets are still available. The show begin at 7 PM. The Museum of Making Music is located at 5790 Armada Drive in Carlsbad, California.
