    The Gibson Brothers


    With accolades including the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year; Song of the Year; Songwriter of the Year and Album of the Year—in some cases multiple times—the Gibson Brothers truly need no introduction in the bluegrass world. Yet even though they’re "bluegrass superstars" (New York Times),there are still plenty of people outside the worlds of bluegrass and acoustic music who are not yet familiar with their music.  For them, In The Ground is the perfect record—just as it is for long-time Gibson Brothers fans, too.

    Amy Black


    Nashville-based, Amy Black returns to OLS for an intimate evening (duo), singing songs from her last four albums, included her newest release, Memphis. Amy Black has always been drawn to soul singers. But it wasn't until she began exploring her own southern soul roots for her last album, The Muscle Shoals Sessions, that she found her musical sweet spot — and knew her next stop had to be the place where blues and soul converge (and where she herself was conceived); where Al Green, Otis Redding and so many others turned grit and groove into some of the world's most beloved tunes.
