The Avett Brothers

New Music from The Avett Brothers

by Alisa Ali
The Avett Brothers

Ahead of the release of their new album, Magpie and the Dandelion — due out in October — The Avett Brothers have released a new song. "Another Is Waiting" is a short song that gets right to the point in typical Avett Brothers fashion, with banjo, guitars and drums. On this track, Seth Avett sings about a person he sees headed down the wrong path.

Newport Folk Festival 2013 Recap

Newport Folk is one of the festivals I most look forward to every summer. The waterfront location is just breathtaking. I took about a hundred photos of boats, seagulls and sunsets, and of course probably twice that of all the bands and musicians. (I'll let the professional photographers share their pics with you instead of my camera phone pics).

Led by North Carolina brothers Seth and Scott Avett, the band blends showmanship and poignancy. Their songs reflect thoughtfully on life and death and love, while toggling between swoonily pretty roots-pop ballads and frenetic, barnstorming punk-bluegrass hybrids. Watch the band encore with "I And Love And You" and hear the full set.

The Avett Brothers - Words and Music - 2009

by Alisa Ali
There are only two brothers in the North-Carolina Indie-folk group The Avett Brothers, Scott and Seth, but when one of the specialties of your sound is the three-part harmony it helps to have two other band members. They were recently playing a gig in midtown at Terminal Five and FUV's Alisa Ali was able to have a chat with them backstage as they toured to support their latest album, 'I and Love and You.'
