An Evening With The Gibson Brothers: The Darkest Hour Tour
Thursday, February 2, 7 – 9 pm
There’s a reason why Ricky Skaggs pulled Eric and Leigh Gibson off the stage at the Ryman two decades ago and offered to produce their debut record. The same thing that led David Ferguson and Grammy-Award winning producer and Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach to co-write and produce their 14th album “Mockingbird” (2018) and release it on his own label Easy Eye Sound alongside cultural icons such as Hank Williams Jr. and Dr. John: the Gibson Brothers are the real deal.
They can pick. They can sing. And they can write a damn good country song.

A country-hit musical that’s not to be missed!
Join us at Pendragon during Winter Carnival and hear some of country’s greatest pop hits as three gutsy women leading unfulfilled lives decide to cut loose and board a bus headed for Nashville to pursue their dream of becoming country singers.
Loads of twang and sass result in a feel-good mix of laughter, tears, and country pop favorites. “These Boots are Made for Walking,” “Stand by Your Man,” “Delta Dawn,” “9 to 5,” “Amazing Grace,” and “Harper Valley PTA” are just a few of the heart-thumpin’, foot-stompin’, country classics you’ll experience — with a live band on stage — for Honky Tonk Angels at Pendragon Theatre.
