The Gibson Brothers visited WAMU’s Bluegrass Country studios on Friday afternoon (February 27) to introduce their new mandolin player, Joe Walsh and to talk about their upcoming CD, Ring the Bell.
A recording of their studio performance, during which they sang Ring the Bell and Bottomland, both on their new CD, will be broadcast on Tuesday, March 3, at 9am ET during Katy Daley’s Morning Show. Ring The Bell will be released by Compass Records on May 5.
In addition they played some of their standards and a couple of gospel songs, Satan’s Jeweled Crown and When God Comes and Gather His Jewels. The show, which Katy Daley says provides “The Best Seat in the House,” is available live on the Internet also at bluegrasscountry.org.
If you miss the Tuesday morning programme, the show will air again in the Special Programming slot starting March 21. Special Programming details are as follows; Sunday. 6pm. ET, Tuesday 6am. ET, Wednesday 12pm. ET, Thursday 5am. ET, and Friday 3am. ET.
WAMU transmits on 88.5 FM and 105.5 FM from Reston, Virginia.
While talking of The Gibson Brothers, the band played to a 200-strong audience in Hughsville, Maryland, on Saturday. The general view of their show was very positive, with one reviewer indicating that they seemed "tighter than ever.”
