Gibson Brothers Select New Mandolin Player


The Gibson Brothers have paired down the short-list and come up with what some are calling an honor to their departing mandolinist – Joe Walsh.

In an announcement on their website and social pages, the brothers said:

“We are proud to announce the addition of mandolinist Jesse Brock as a full-time member of The Gibson Brothers. Jesse has won IBMA's Mandolin Player of the Year Award and has played with Lynn Morris, Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper, Chris Jones, and Audie Blaylock and Redline.

Jesse replaces Joe Walsh, who toured with us for four and a half years and whose sterling mandolin work can be heard on our three Compass recordings. We welcome Jesse and wish Joe the best in his future endeavors.”
