Bluegrass Royalty Gibson Brothers at Bull Run
January 28 @ 8:00 pm
Back-to-back International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainers of the Year The Gibson Brothers (Eric and Leigh Gibson) harmonize through genres Jan. 28 at the Bull Run in Shirley.
They’re bluegrass royalty, who along with their Mockingbird Band (Eric O’Hara on steel & electric guitar, Sam Zucchini on percussion and Mike Barber on Bass), they step into uncharted territory on their country-soul breakout “Mockingbird,” produced by Grammy Award winners Dan Auerbach and Fergie Ferguson.
The “Mockingbird” album is a mix of country, soul and seventies rock, and the album further cements the sibling duo as musical trailblazers.
As players and vocalists, they are superb, harmonizing as only siblings can. And as songwriters they stand without peer, having long been a band awarded for their songs and songwriting. The 11 tracks on Mockingbird, their 14th album, draw on much of the brothers’ experiences being raised on the family farm in Northern New York. As Northerners growing up in a Southern business, they had to work twice as hard as the bands from the South to achieve the success they had, and were the first from that far north to carve a path to IBMA Entertainers of the Year.
Doors open at 6pm for dinner and seating. Showtime is 8pm.
