The Gibson Brothers are the bluegrass duo of Eric and Leigh Gibson, from Ellenburg Depot, New York, in the hardscrabble lands along the Quebec border. They’ve gotten widespread recognition for their deep and realistic original songwriting, which grows organically out of the community and the experiences in which the brothers have taken part. There’s beauty but also pain in the vivid storytelling of their songs. But the Gibsons also fit perfectly into the great tradition of brother duets with their ringing, instinctive harmonies. Says Michael Eck of No Depression: “To say they’ve got the classic brother duet thing down is an understatement; they own it.” Some of their recent music has been experimenting with the incorporation of electric instruments. This duo has been cleaning up at bluegrass awards shows these days, and if you’re wondering who the heirs apparent to the bluegrass greats might be … well, come on by! The Gibson Brothers come to Michigan with a wonderful new release, “Darkest Hour.”
