The Gibson Brothers: A North Country Christmas

8 December 2018
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Barre Opera House

The Gibson Brothers North Country Christmas Shows have become a tradition in the Upstate New York where the bluegrass stars are from. This year they are taking this show on the road to Vermont and are bringing family and friends along to celebrate the holidays with you.

THE GIBSON BROTHERS BRAND of bluegrass is a visceral mix of heritage and soaring harmony, making them the premiere brother duet of the genre, following in the footsteps of legendary brother acts such as the Stanley Brothers, Jim & Jesse, and the Osborne Brothers. Their first-ever album of entirely original songs, In the Ground sees the Gibson Brothers taking on their own roots as the sixth generation to grow up on their family farm. The two-time International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainers of the Year follow up their stellar, 5-times nominated tribute to brother harmonies, Brotherhood, with this latest effort, which digs even deeper into their commitment to family and their history. The themes come from the farm, their childhood, and the region in which they were raised. One can hear their dedication to the songs, from the lighthearted to the profound; in the modernity of the lyrics, matched with a virtuosity that feels somehow both traditional and revelatory. Featuring celebrated, award-winning Dobro player Rob Ickes, In the Ground reaches into new territory for the Gibson Brothers as they reflect on their past.

NEWSFLASH: The International Bluegrass Music Association just nominated The Gibsons for their Vocal Group of the Year award!
