They are often joined on tour by cellist Joe Kwon. On the other hand… "Saying The Avett Brothers is a folk rock band from Concord, North Carolina is like saying The Beatles were a nice little rock band from Liverpool. In North Carolina we are afflicted, like those in love, with a sweet agony called Avettmania. The Brothers Avett are a North Carolina treasure" ~ The Mast Farm Inn

The Avett Brothers, Murder In The City
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."


"Roots music wasn’t entirely new to the Avetts. They grew up in rural North Carolina, with chickens in the yard; their grandfather was a preacher, and their grandmother played piano in church. Their father, Jim, an accomplished songwriter and musician in his own right, played Hank Williams, Tom T. Hall and Appalachian folk around the house. What the Avetts found in their turn to acoustic music wasn’t so much a particular style as a way to sing more honest, personal songs." ~ David Roberts, The Fretboard Journal

The Avett Brothers • Head Full Of Doubt, Road Full of Promise
"If you put your ear to the street, you can hear the rumble of the world in motion; people going to and from work, to school, to the grocery store. You may even hear the whisper of their living rooms, their conversation, their complaints, and if you’re lucky, their laughter. If you’re almost anywhere in America , you’ll hear something different, something special, something you recognize but haven’t heard in a long time. It is the sound of a real celebration. It is not New Year’s, and it is not a political convention. It is neither a prime time game-show, nor a music video countdown, bloated with fame and sponsorship. What you are hearing is the love for a music. It is the unbridled outcry of support for a song that sings to the heart, that dances with the soul. The jubilation is in the theaters, the bars, the music clubs, the festivals. The love is for a band. The songs are honest: just chords with real voices singing real melodies. But, the heart and the energy with which they are sung, is really why people are talking, and why so many sing along. They are a reality in a world of entertainment built with smoke and mirrors, and when they play, the common man can break the mirrors and blow the smoke away, so that all that’s left behind is the unwavering beauty of the songs. That’s the commotion, that’s the celebration, and wherever The Avett Brothers are tonight, that’s what you’ll find."

The Brothers Avett, The road to the Avett brothers’ family home in Concord, North Carolina, snakes through suburbia, passing freshly constructed strip malls and a pristine elementary school. But then the pavement gives way to gravel, the trees become thicker, the distance between houses grows longer. It’s nearly dark, but in the woods behind a weather-beaten farmhouse, the faint notes of a banjo and a guitar can be heard underneath blissful harmonies.
"Leaving the Marshall stacks behind was liberating. With lighter gear came mobility, spontaneity and less distance between the band and their audiences. They focused on crafting simple, openhearted songs and delivering them with unrestrained energy." ~ David Roberts, The Fretboard Journal


"If someone is standing 10 feet away talking to you on a bullhorn," Crawford told the Vancouver Sun," sure, you can understand what they’re saying. But if they’re standing next to you and whispering in your ear, it’s more intimate. And that’s what acoustic music does." The Avett Brothers don’t tiptoe around pain and struggle, but they refuse to be miserable. They speak to their fans’ hopes and aspirations as well as their regrets, their pride as well as their doubts, in a cynical, media-saturated age when few others are doing so" ~ David Roberts, The Fretboard Journal

"Saying The Avett Brothers is a folk rock band from Concord, North Carolina is like saying The Beatles were a nice little rock band from Liverpool, England. In North Carolina we are afflicted, like those in love, with the sweet agony called Avettmania. A real blessing, and a North Carolina treasure" ~ The Mast Farm Inn
