The Gibson Brothers brand of bluegrass is a visceral mix of heritage and soaring harmony, making them the premiere brother duet of the genre, following in the footsteps of legendary brother acts such as the Stanley Brothers, Jim & Jesse, and the Osborne Brothers. Their upcoming release, "In the Ground," (debuting Nov 2018) was produced by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys and brings a whole new meaning to Leigh and Eric's honky tonk roots.
Besides writing amazing songs and having beautiful voices, they have just about every Bluegrass Award you can think of;Entertainer of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Emerging Artist of the Year and Gospel Recorded Performance of the Year. You see what I mean. "Help My Brother" held the #1 position on the Bluegrass Unlimited Album chart for 8 months, and it was still charting on the BU Top 30 more than a year after its release.
On their new Album, "In the Ground," you can hear their dedication to the songs, from the lighthearted to the profound; in the modernity of the lyrics, matched with a virtuosity that feels somehow both traditional and revelatory. Featuring celebrated, award-winning Dobro player Rob Ickes.
The Gibson Brothers truly need no introduction in the bluegrass world. And even though they’ve become "bluegrass superstars" (New York Times), there are still plenty of people outside the worlds of bluegrass and acoustic music who are not yet familiar with their music. If you haven't yet discovered them - now's the time! This will be their full 4-piece band show.
“When I hear someone like the Gibson Brothers, I know it’s them from the first note. They have that little thing in their voices that no one else has... - Del McCoury
"Eric and Leigh Gibson might have, pound-for-pound, the most impeccably fine-sounding traditional bluegrass band on the contemporary scene. ...the reason these guys can’t lose is that, quite simply, they sound so great. Eric and Leigh sing bluegrass’ tightest harmony blend and instrumentally the group plays with unmatched alacrity and taste." - PopMatters
