Iron & Diamonds

Gibson-Brothers.jpg

The duo of Leigh and Eric Gibson hails from upstate New York, and their eighth album is quickly identifiable as Northern bluegrass—a little more cerebral and less fiery than its Southern counterpart. So while the brothers rarely raise a sweat on Iron & Diamonds, they do dig up smartly adventurous song choices like Tom Petty’s “Cabin Down Below,” Julie Miller’s “Somewhere Trouble Don’t Go” and Faron Young’s “A World So Full of Love.” They have just as deft a touch with originals like the title cut, which spins a tale of miners in the Adirondacks with a distinctly Northern pride.
