Event Description:

The Avett Brothers are the epitome of quintessential American bands. Today, their narrative folk-rock tells bigger stories about what it means to be Southern, to be American, to be alive. The live show is second to none and is not a concert as much as a celebration of life.

Days after the HBO debut of their critically acclaimed documentary ‘May It Last: A Portrait of The Avett Brothers’, the Grammy-nominated album ‘True Sadness’ launched to #3 on the iTunes Album Chart and #1 on the Rock Albums chart. The album was also nominated for Best Americana Album and Best American Roots Performance for “Ain’t No Man” by the 2017 Grammy Awards. In addition, the Rick Rubin produced album, True Sadness continues to garner overwhelming critical acclaim with many considering it their finest release yet. Rolling Stone extolled it as “Their most heart-baring LP,” while Paste dubbed it, “Their most surprising album.” People claimed, “The sincerity of the lyrics keeps the boys true to their roots,” and Interview wrote, “As a whole, True Sadness is the band’s most intimate and exploratory album to date.” The Current summed up its impact asserting, “THE AVETT BROTHERS have emerged as the key act redefining the genre.”
