For thousands of years, sailors navigated by the stars, trusting the constellations to keep them on the correct course. The same celestial bodies that led them away from home were the same ones that directed them back. Since childhood, Eric and Leigh Gibsons guiding stars have been songs recorded by musics greatest brother duos: the Monroes, the Louvins, and the Everlys, whose close harmonies have captivated listeners for decades. On February 24, 2015, the two-time International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainers of the Year will release Brotherhood, a salute to those influential groups.Making an album like this is something weve always talked about, explains Leigh Gibson. At some point you have to stop talking and start doing.Older brother Eric elaborates: We love that tradition of brothers singing together, and to pay tribute to that shows people where our hearts are.For Brotherhood, Eric and Leigh chose fifteen songs from country, bluegrass, and early rock n roll brother acts. The track listing reflects nearly a century of American music history, from The Eastbound Train, a parlor tune with roots that can be traced back to the 1890s, to Itll Be Her, a Top 20 single released by Tompall and the Glaser Brothers in 1982. This is the music the Gibsons grew up with on the family dairy farm in Ellenburg Depot, a tiny town in upstate New York that was closer to the Canadian border than it was to a record store.
