The Gibson Brothers

BROWNFIELD ME: Oh, I love these these bluegrass greats!!! You name a bluegrass award and they have won it : Songwriter of the Year, Entertainer of the Year, Emerging Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year….and some of these multiple times! These brothers of bluegrass, write really amazing songs, have beautiful voices and are just the real deal. In a climate of new grass and a glut on new string bands, these brothers hold true to the old time bluegrass and country. They were featured on Prairie Home Companion last year and of course many of you have seen them here at Christmas….they always bring the house down. They have a sound that is so sincere. Its like they grew up in a country band decades ago, when the divisions of country music were not so defined. But they are every bit of here for today’s’ stages.
