    The Gibson Brothers and Mike Compton & Joe Newberry

    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. Multi-IBMA award winners, they most recently received the top award in bluegrass, the coveted 2012 Entertainers of the Year. In 2011 they won Vocal Group of the Year and Album of the Year. Both Eric and Leigh are phenomenal song writers and performers and clear crowd favorites. Joining them are Joe Walsh on mandolin, Clayton Campbell on fiddle and Mike Barber on bass.

    Mike Compton is consider the master of Bill Monroe style bluegrass mandolin. While he's well known for his involvement in several Grammy-winning projects including "Oh, Brother Where Art Thou," and his collaborations with people like John Hartford and David Grier, he's probably best known as the mandolinist for the Nashville Bluegrass Band. North Carolina-based Joe Newberry is a multi-instrumentalist, stellar on banjo, fiddle, and guitar, and member of the award-winning band Big Medicine. Together they make a terrific duet.
