Not to be confused with the punk-Americana band of the same name, the Gibson Brothers are a popular and well-regarded bluegrass act featuring actual brothers Leigh and Eric Gibson and a stellar backing band. Although steeped in the traditional goosebump-raising harmonies and lightning rhythms of bluegrass, the Gibsons are adventurous and forward-thinking in their song choices, covering Tom Petty and Steve Earle, and co-writing with country legend Roger Miller. This delightful album will please fans of both trad folk and "new grass."
