Plucking away with unfaltering determination and skill, The Gibson Brothers emerged onto the bluegrass scene, with Leigh Gibson on guitar and Eric Gibson on the banjo. From their humble beginning in upstate New York, the brothers have, since, carried their careers thousands of miles to play hundreds of shows. It has been a journey on which they have fine-tuned their abilities to blend powerhouse harmonies with virtuosic picking, and the caliber of their live performance is a clear reflection of their dedicated and developed musicianship. Voted 2013 Entertainers of the Year at the IBMA World of Bluegrass in Raleigh, N.C., the Gibson Brothers also won Vocal Group of the Year, Song of the Year ("They Called It Music") and Songwriter of the Year. Ranging from fun and energetic to serious and deliberate, the Gibson Brothers’ music has never been more impressive.
