THE GIBSON BROTHERS, “Brotherhood,” Rounder. 15 tracks.

Eric and Leigh Gibson, arguably the hottest brother act in bluegrass after winning the International Bluegrass Music Association’s entertainer of the year honors in both 2012 and 2013, celebrate some of the great brother acts in country, rock’n’roll and bluegrass music in their new album, “Brotherhood.”

The upstate New York natives cut their first album in 1993.

“Brotherhood” is album No. 12 and it’s one of their best.

Material ranges from “Eastbound Train,” written in the 1890s, to Tompall and the Glaser Brothers 1982 hit, “It’ll Be Her.”

The lineup includes the Monroe Brothers‘ “I Have Found The Way,” Phil and Don Everly‘s “Bye Bye Love” and “Crying In The Rain,” Charlie and Ira Louvin‘s “Seven Year Blues,” Jim and Jesse McReynolds‘ “Sweet Little Miss Blue Eyes,” Carter and Ralph Stanley‘s “How Mountain Girls Can Love,” the Blue Sky Boys‘ “The Sweetest Gift,” the York Brothers‘ “Long Gone,” the Church Brothers‘ “Angel With Blue Eyes,” the Four Brothers Quartet‘s “What A Wonderful Savior Is He,” the Osborne Brothers “Each Season Changes You” and the Lilly Brothers, “I’m Troubled I’m Troubled.”

“Brotherhood” shows that the Gibsons are equal to the task of matching their harmonies with some of the best brother acts in music.
