The Best in the Business

At the top of Their Game

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Well, really all you have to do is read the headline and you know the story, but they pay me to write so let me prove my case.

Ladies and gents, The Gibson Brothers are the reigning two-time champions in their field, recipients of both the 2012 and 2013 International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Entertainer of the Year Award. That’s the one that they announce at the end of the show, by the way.

Not enough to get you off the couch? Let’s try their other awards from just the most recent IBMA:

- Best Vocal Group

- Best Song – “They Called it Music”

- Best Songwriter – Eric Gibson

If that doesn’t clinch the deal, how about the fact that The Gibson Brothers are homegrown with roots in both the Adirondack and Saratoga regions before touring worldwide and leaving an entire genre in their wake. 

The Gibson Brothers are too nice and grateful to say something like that of course, but it’s true.

I’m nice but not that nice, so I’ll put it another way: 

There is no more accomplished music group of any genre since well, whenever, that hails from our region. 

And you have the opportunity to see them on Sunday.

If you need any further evidence, or just would like to enjoy perusing through their many awards, eleven albums (the latest having the title track – “They Called it Music” – which won the Song of the Year award) or other accolades simply visit www.gibsonbrothers.com.

The fact is you can sometimes spend pages and pages and thousands of words to try and make your point. When talking about The Gibson Brothers, I only need eleven:

The best in the business. At the top of their game.

Case closed.
