The Good Brothers are a country, bluegrass and folk music group originating from Richmond Hill, Ontario. The band’s core members are Brian Good (guitar), his twin brother Bruce Good (autoharp) and younger brother Larry Good (banjo). Brian and Bruce Good initially joined guitarist James Ackroyd to form the band James and the Good Brothers in 1967.

In 1973, younger brother Larry Good joined the twins to form a new band. Their role in Canadian music was strengthened by winning the Juno Award for Country Group or Duo for eight consecutive years from 1977 to 1984.
