“Bluegrass superstars” –The New York Times
Celebrated bluegrass royalty, The Gibson Brothers, have been named back-to-back “Entertainers of the Year” by the International Bluegrass Music Association in 2012 and 2013.
A mix of country, soul and seventies rock, their country-soul breakout Mockingbird (produced by Grammy Award winners Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and Fergie Ferguson), further cements the sibling duo as musical trailblazers. As players and vocalists, they are superb, harmonizing as only siblings can; as songwriters they stand without peer, having long been a band awarded for their songs and songwriting.
“It almost goes without saying that they succeed marvelously with this stunning effort.” –Elmore Magazine
Within a year of releasing their self-titled debut (2014), the Nashville-based six-piece band, The Earls of Leicester, far surpassed their own expectations – winning a Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album and earning six awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association. Now, with their first live album, Live From The CMA Theater in The Country Music Hall of Fame, they offer up a selection of songs that fully capture the pure joy and supreme musicianship that propel their every performance.
