NPR icon The Avett Brothers, Live In Concert: Newport Folk 2013

by Stephen Thompson
Adam Kissick

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.
