Congrats to the Gibson Brothers!

Friday, September 30th, 2011

The International Bluegrass Music Association’s 22nd annual International Bluegrass Music Awards were handed out last night at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, and Nippertown’s own premier bluegrass group, the Gibson Brothers walked away with two of the top honors.

Brothers Leigh and Eric Gibson and their band – fiddler Clayton Campbell, mandolinist Joe Walsh and upright bassist Mike Barber – earned a pair of the ceremonies’ most prestigious trophies – Vocal Group of the Year and Album of the Year, as artists and producers of their latest Compass records recording “Help My Brother.”

The Gibson Brothers went into the ceremonies with a whopping seven nominations this year, including a first time nod for Entertainers of the Year (which they lost to Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Band.)

Previously, the Gibson Brothers had been named IBMA Emerging Artists of the Year back in 1998, and last year, the band took home a pair of trophies from the ceremony – one for Best Gospel Recorded Performance and one for the prestigious Song of the Year.

If you want to hear the best bluegrass music, see the best bands and have the best bluegrass festival experience then the place to go isn’t down in North Carolina. Or the hills of Tennessee. Or some backwoods holler in Kentucky.

No, the best bluegrass event of the year took place right here in Nippertown – the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival at the Walsh Farm in Oak Hill (Greene County).
