The Avett Brothers [Sing-A-Long Saturday]

Posted on: August 22, 2009

I was introduced to the Avett Brothers last summer while working at a summer camp. They were a popular among some of my fellow counselors and I quickly fell in love with them as well.

The Avett Brothers combine folk, bluegrass, country, and rock and roll melodies to create a unique sound. The band is comprised of two brothers, Seth and Scott Avett, and Bob Crawford, as well as Joe Kwon who usually joins them on tour.

I was lucky enough to see the Avett Brothers perform live this past June in Grand Rapids. They bring a great presence to the stage, even in an outdoor theater. They are a lot of fun to see live and fun for the whole family — there were people of all ages there when I saw them in concert (which might not be a good thing if you don’t like sitting next to annoying children, like we were).

I tried to compile a list of some of my favorite songs, but they have such a prolific list that it was hard. I tried anyway, so here are some of my faves, but I’m sure I’m missing some:

The Ballad of Love and Hate

The Weight of Lies

Tear Down the House

And one of their new songs: I and Love and You

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They really are one of my favorite bands.

I LOVE the Avett Brothers! They played several years in a row where I live at this very small indie-music fest. Last year they didn't return and I knew they'd moved onto bigger things. Awesome for them. Such nice guys,too.
