Bluegrass brother duets specialists, The Gibson Brothers, have announced Jesse Brock as the new mandolinist in the band. He fills the spot recently vacated by Joe Walsh, who had spent the past 4 1/2 years touring with the brothers.
Over the past few years, Jesse has been a member of Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper and Audie Blaylock and Redline. He was chosen as Mandolin Player of the Year at the 2009 International Bluegrass Music Awards.
Brock will officially join the Gibsons at the Red, White and Bluegrass Festival in Morganton, NC on July 3.
