Originally based in New York, Eric and Leigh Gibson have been playing and singing their special brand of brother duet and bluegrass music since 1983. In 2013, the Gibson Brothers won entertainer of the year for a second straight year at the International Bluegrass Music Awards as well as three other group and individual trophies.   Eric Gibson was named Songwriter of the Year and the New York-based quintet also won Vocal Group of the Year and Song of the Year for “They Called it Music,” written by Gibson and Joe Newberry.  Both Eric and Leigh are phenomenal song writers and performers and clear crowd favorites. Joining them are Jesse Brock on mandolin, Clayton Campbell on fiddle and Mike Barber on bass.

Celebrating their 46th Anniversary in 2011, the Seldom Scene has thrived on playing bluegrass a little differently than everyone else. If other bands used a fiddler, the Seldom Scene used a Dobro; if others relied on old standards, the Seldom Scene played rock classics like J.J. Cale’s “After Midnight.” Through skilled musicianship and an urban approach to bluegrass, the Seldom Scene has become one of the most influential bluegrass band of the last 30 years.  They are also a BBU favorite, and often grace the Joe Val stage.  This should be a great concert, as they are all accomplished musicians and great entertainers.
