The Gibson Brothers at Oldenburg... on TV


Thanks to Helmuth Schumacher for this link to YouTube for a ten-minute video from ONBC Television, shot in Oldenburg, Germany, while the Gibson Brothers (USA) were there for their appearance at the Staatstheater on 11 April 2010.

Joachim Mirkes conducts a six-minute interview with Eric and Leigh Gibson and their mandolin player Joe Walsh al fresco in Oldenburg. The brothers mention their latest CD, Ring the bell (#1 in the Bluegrass Unlimited album charts for three months), and give an example of duet singing. The remaining four minutes are shot in the Staatstheater, where the band are warming up by running through 'Turkey in the straw'.
