Shannon Gibson — mother of Eric and Leigh Gibson — sits on a couch with her dog, Finnegan, after watching her sons win several International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) awards Sept. 26 on the Bluegrass Today website. The ceremony was streamed live from Raleigh, N.C. Standing behind her is daughter, Erin Gibson LaClair, who was texting friends and family with news that her brothers had just won the IBMA Entertainer of the Year award for the second year in a row. At right is Shannon’s sister, Molly Begor, of Rouses Point. They watched the show at Erin's house in Ellenburg.

For those here in the Gibson Brothers family who couldn’t make it to Raleigh, N.C. Thursday, Sept. 26 to see “the boys” win four International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) awards, watching the ceremony on the computer was the next best thing.
