“Always remember there was nothing worth sharing like the love that let us share our name”, these words play over and over in my head every time I look into my children’s eyes, words from a song titled, “Murder in the City”, with lyrics that pull at your heart strings and bring forth deep emotions of love and devotion to those closet to us, our families. The Avett Brothers music isn’t just something to be enjoyed – they do what music is meant to do – tell stories that we can all relate to, with heavy emotions of love, hate, joy, pain, loss, forgiveness; The Avett Brothers are true musical story tellers.
The Avett Brothers combine bluegrass, country, punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, honky tonk, and ragtime to produce a sound described by the San Francisco Chronicle as having the “heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision of Buddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, the raw energy of the Ramones.”
The band has been together since the early 90’s and have grown in popularity with appearances at this year’s Mountain Jam and Govenor’s Ball. The Avett Borthers are – Brothers Scott Avett (banjo) and Seth Avett (guitar)—as well as Bob Crawford (double bass). Joe Kwon, (cello) and Mike Marsh (drums).
