Gibson Brothers 

When: Sat., March 12, 6 p.m. 2011
Price: $12-15

Eric Gibson's clear voice ascends the peaks of the traditional bluegrass quintet to find heartache, melancholy nostalgia and joyous hope. After all, high tenor vocals embody a sense of longing that defines bluegrass as much as the banjo does. Those high vocals are most effective, though, when rooted by something deeper, like Leigh Gibson's more resounding voice. Though different, the brothers' voices share a quality that makes their harmonies really stand out. The Gibson Brothers won a 2010 IMBA Award for Song of the Year, and released their 10th album, Help My Brother, last month. Mostly originals, the new record also includes songs by other great brother groups The Louvin Brothers and Jim and Jesse McReynolds. —Andrew Ritchey
