We are a family who absolutely loves Jesus and bluegrass music so when you put them together, you have a great way to serve God, bless people and enjoy being a family. We have been “Having the Best Time” of our lives since Jesus saved our souls. We love Jesus because He’s so much more than Our Savior. He’s our friend, our strength, our navigator, our all in all. We love bluegrass because it’s so much more than music. It’s friends that become family, people sharing life and blessing one another, our inheritance, our legacy and our way of bringing love and light into the world.
We are a family of six, with Daddy Chris Klein making it all possible by working so hard and supporting us in every way he can. The rest of us sing lead and harmony and play a variety of instruments. DeAnna Klein, 19, plays fiddle and guitar. Shawn Luke Klein, 16, plays banjo, Dobro® and guitar. Sylvia Klein, 12, plays mandolin and guitar. Clara Klein, 9, plays fiddle and guitar. Mama Liberty Klein plays upright bass. All of us began lessons with Rick Campbell in 2010, started playing with a young bluegrass musicians group in 201 land by 2012, we were playing as The Klein Family. We play a variety of bluegrass music at various venues and write and perform original material.
We really hope something that we’ve recorded on our CD blesses you and touches your heart. If something lifts you up, then we’ve done what we set out to do. We love meeting new people and hope to see you soon. Making new friends and keeping the old is one of our greatest blessings . God be with you, my friend.
ROY’s HALL is proud to present IBMA 2012 and 2013 Entertainer of the Year, The Gibson Brothers. The reigning IBMA Entertainers of the Year will take the audience on a journey through some of the greatest brother harmony songs from the 20th century. The Gibson Brothers combine their wide-ranging influences into a unique style that honors tradition while still sounding refreshingly new.
Leigh and Eric Gibson are joined by Mike Barber on bass, Jesse Brock on mandolin and Clayton Campbell on fiddle. A No Depression blogger recently referred to the other three members of the band as “..the Gibson Brothers who don’t share the Gibson name.” But there’s no doubt they’re a band of musical brothers. Steve Leftridge of PopMatters described them this way: “Eric and Leigh Gibson might have, pound-for-pound, the most impeccably fine-sounding traditional bluegrass band on the contemporary scene. …the reason these guys can’t lose is that, quite simply, they sound so great. Eric and Leigh sing bluegrass’ tightest harmony blend, and, instrumentally the group plays with unmatched alacrity and taste. ”
