The Gibson Brothers truly need no introduction in the bluegrass world – the accolades of these “bluegrass superstars” (The New York Times) include the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year; Song of the Year; Songwriter of the Year and Album of the Year. Born on a northern New York dairy farm, Eric and Leigh Gibson started playing banjo and guitar in middle school. From those beginnings, the brothers have joined forces with a loyal and virtuosic team of musicians to create their own distinctive mix of heritage and soaring harmony.
Joe Newberry and April Verch open the evening.
