There’s no cussin’ in this squeaky clean episode of The To Do List podcast, where we talk to Leigh Gibson, 1/2 of the bluegrass duo The Gibson Brothers, about songwriting, staying true to yourself, meeting your idols, Jamie’s conversion to being a bluegrass fan, and why this episode took so long to release.
Leigh also treats us to a special version of the song “Want vs. Need” from their new record, Help My Brother.
Family-friendly and scrubbed of profanity! Just in time for your holiday weekend travel!
2010 IBMA Award Winners, The Gibson Brothersâ€”Eric and Leighâ€”are widely recognized as the finest brother duet in bluegrass music today.Â Whether taking on a gospel standard, re-imagining a Ray Charles classic or weaving a tale of their own, Leigh, Eric and the boys always seem to hit the mark. Their latest album on Compass Records, Help My Brother, has already been hailed by reviewers.
â€śHelp My Brotherâ€ť is a special recording.Â It has wisdom and joy.Â It has emotion and humor.Â It has heritage and spirituality.Â But mostly it is just excellent music from some wonderful, immensely talented folks; Eric and Leigh Gibson, Mike Barber, Clayton Campbell and Joe Walsh.Â And just for good measure theyâ€™ve brought along Ricky Skaggs, Claire Lynch, Alison Brown and Mike Witcher to add to the joy.Â Buy it.Â Youâ€™ll be awful glad you did.
Do yourself a favor and get it now.
Also, their live show is definitely worth your time and money. Check out their tour schedule.Â They’re probably playing near you soon.
