The Gibson Brothers
The Gibson Brothers were recognized with the 2013 International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainers of the Year and Vocal Group of the Year awards, as well as Song of the Year (for “They Called It Music”) and Songwriter of the Year (Eric Gibson). The band has earned praise for their “exquisitely crafted, evocatively original songs” (PopMatters) and the “the thrilling tang of their throwback brotherly harmonies” (Nashville Scene).
With 2015’s Brotherhood, the band honors the special bond between founders Eric and Leigh Gibson with an all-covers album of songs recorded by music’s greatest brother duos. The concept of families singing together is a tradition that stretches back through the history of folk music, and with 20 years of musicianship behind them, the Gibson Brothers, using those groups as a compass, establish themselves as proud keepers of that musical heritage.
