An evening with The Gibson Brothers at Roy’s Hall

Gibson BrothersFriday June 24, 2016 – 08:00 PM

ROY’s HALL is proud to present IBMA 2012 and 2013 Entertainer of the Year, The Gibson Brothers. The reigning IBMA Entertainers of the Year will take the audience on a journey through some of the greatest brother harmony songs from the 20th century. The Gibson Brothers combine their wide­-ranging influences into a unique style that honors tradition while still sounding refreshingly new.

Leigh and Eric Gibson are joined by Mike Barber on bass, Jesse Brock on mandolin and Clayton Campbell on fiddle. A No Depression blogger recently referred to the other three members of the band as “..the Gibson Brothers who don’t share the Gibson name.” But there’s no doubt they’re a band of musical brothers.  Steve Leftridge of PopMatters described them this way: “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. ”

Fountain House Jam

Fountain House Jam

This Thursday is the 2nd Thursday so lets play some bluegrass. Bring an instrument and a friend and we’ll meet at the Fountain House across from the Firehouse on Rt 94 in Fredon, NJ.  What’s better than that?

In the meantime here’s an old Jimmie Rodger tune you might like.  Do we have any yodelers in the group?

In The Jailhouse Now – No. 2

Words and music by Jimmie Rodgers

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSq8mnDH_1o

[D] I had a friend named Campbell

He used to rob, steal and gamble

He tried ev’rything that was low-[G] down

He was out tom-cattin’ one night

When he started a big fight

Then a [A] big policeman [E] came and knocked him [A] down.

He’s in the [D] jailhouse now

He’s in the [G] jailhouse now

I [A] told him over again

To quit drinking whiskey

Lay off of that [A7] gin

He’s in the [A] jailhouse [D] now. (Yodel)

Campbell broke jail one day

Decided he’d go away

But the police met him at the train

The cop says I’ve come for you

Campbell says that this won’t do

Because Campbell never was my name.

He’s in the jailhouse now

He’s in the jailhouse now

Yes, he broke out

All over town the fool walked about

He’s in the jailhouse now. (Yodel)

I met his old gal Sadie

‘She said, “Have you seen my baby”

I told her he was downtown in the can

She went down to the jail

Just to go his bail

She said, “I’ve come down here to get my man.”

She’s in the jailhouse now

She’s in the jailhouse now

So you can understand

Why old kid Sadie’s in the can

She’s in the jailhouse now. (Yodel)
