If you’re suffering from bluegrass withdrawl in the wake of Wide Open Bluegrass, presented by PNC, PineCone has just what you need this month – an intimate evening in Fletcher Theater with the exciting, entertaining band The Gibson Brothers, who were the first brother duet to earn IBMA’s Entertainer of the Year Award when they received it in 2012. They proved that achievement was no fluke when they earned the title again in 2013 (in 2011, they were also the first brother duet to earn IBMA’s Vocal Group of the Year). In 2013, they won the Vocal Group of the Year again, along with Song of the Year (“They Called It Music”) and Eric was named the Songwriter of the Year. In 2012, they also earned the “Gospel Recorded Performance of the Year” award for “Singing As We Rise.” Both of these award-winning songs were co-written by NC’s own Joe Newberry, a frequent collaborator with The Gibson Brothers. And earlier this month, mandolin player Jesse Brock earned the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Mandolin Player of the Year Award! The Gibson Brothers continued to build on the momentum of their success with last year’s release on Rounder Records, Brotherhood, an homage to the brother duos that have inspired them since childhood. They chose 15 songs from country, bluegrass, and early rock ‘n’ roll brother acts, including some who will be familiar to most listeners, such as Phil & Don Everly, Charlie & Ira Louvin, Jim & Jesse McReynolds, and Carter & Ralph Stanley. Brotherhood also features covers of songs recorded by some lesser-known acts, including the Blue Sky Boys, the Church Brothers, and the York Brothers.
