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. ”
