The Avett Brothers
Location: The Stiefel Theatre
Date: July 4
In 2001, banjoist Scott and guitarist Seth formed The Avett Brothers with standup bass player Bob. Growing up in Concord, NC, the boys immersed themselves in their musician dad's record collection, falling in love with Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Crosby, Stills & Nash. They rose to the status of genre stalwarts over the course of six albums, including 2007's acclaimed Emotionalism. The book is open though, and the next chapter for The Avett Brothers will definitely be the brightest, boldest, and biggest yet.
During 2009, the group made mainstream waves with their lauded major label debut, I and Love and You. It landed at #16 on the Billboard Top 200 and garnered unanimous critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Paste, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Time, who even dubbed it one of Top 10 albums of the year. 2012 saw The Carpenter hit #4 on the Billboard Top 200–their highest bow to date–while People, USA Today, and American Songwriter lauded the album.
