Timing Choices: Hibbs Family Album Release Show
The Hibbs Family Band has music in its blood. They have to, because it’s not often that a family is able to unite around such a cohesive creative goal as a band. And no, this is not a Walker Brothers situation; the Hibbs Family Band is just that, a family. This time around, brothers Rob and Garrett join their mother Judy and father Henry for their second album, two slippers, a work that is as much a celebration of their family’s long local history as it is a celebration of the music itself. I suppose, however, that for the Hibbs family, it could very well be the same. Much of the album centers around the stories of their family farm and the lives of their older generations. Even the album’s release date, August 28, is a nod to the family’s history: it’s their aunt Clara’s 103rd birthday. To celebrate the release of the album, The Hibbs Family Band will perform at Hendershot’s with AC Darnell.
