A New Wave of Country Music Emerges During a Live Performance with The Gibson Brothers

Offering a new sound to country music, The Gibson Brothers—siblings Eric and Leigh Gibson—have already made over a dozen albums, but none quite like the new Dan Auerbach–produced Mockingbird. Their newest venture is an effortless blend of classic '70s-infused rock and timeless country, a modern twist on their traditional sound, and harmonies that will keep you wishing for more.

The celebrated duo — named back-to-back Entertainers of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association in 2012 and 2013 — played the Nashville game two decades ago, while in their early 20s, and were offered a major label deal, only to be told at the last minute that they were too "retro" for modern country music.

As Northerners growing up in a Southern business, they had to work twice as hard as the bands from the South to achieve the success they had and were the first from that far north to carve a path to IBMA Entertainers of the Year. Today, such characterizations, along with their authenticity, set them apart and describes the marvelous Mockingbird.

On Thursday, May 16th, you can catch them performing live at Manship Theatre! Tickets start at $38 plus applicable fees and can be purchased at https://manshiptheatre.secure.force.com. We encourage you to experience the beautiful harmonies of The Gibson Brothers while you can!
