All in the Family

Listening to Eric and Leigh Gibson play bluegrass, it’s hard to believe the siblings hail not from the heart of Appalachia but from upstate New York. Smitten with the banjo- and guitar-driven tunes of Earl Scruggs and Lester Flatt, the two embraced bluegrass as teenagers and never looked back. Nearly 30 years later, the former farm boys prove the genre is not bound by geography, as a duo or leading the award-winning quintet behind the recently released album Brotherhood. A tribute to brother acts past and present, the record features the Gibsons’ commanding vocal harmonies and hard-picking hits.
