The Avett Brothers - Wakarusa Music Festival

2006 Artist Lineup

The Avett Brothers

The Avett Brothers features a mixture of old-time country, bluegrass, pop melodies, folk, rock n’ roll, honky-tonk and ragtime. Listeners merely need to see one live show to realize the breadth and depth of the band’s music. The range of emotion and conviction found within the songwriting is without parallel in today’s scene. In fact, the overall sound needs no label because, quite frankly, none would do the music justice. It’s truly up to each person to come up with his or her own opinion on the Avett’s music. In January of 2002, The Avett Brothers entered Pat Gauthier’s studio in Marshville, NC to record their first album, Country Was. It was during that time that the Avetts realized the music they were making was special, more natural and truthful than anything they’d ever created before. Featuring Seth Avett on guitar, Scott Avett on banjo, and Bob Crawford on upright bass, the trio have easily shown that half of what makes them great are their live performances, which have proven to entertain and enchant a wide, diverse audience. Scott Avett explained, “When people hear what we’re saying in our songs and listening to things for the right reasons – when they get quiet when we’re playing – it’s a blessing. To know that somebody has a problem in their life that we can temporarily soothe… that’s what it’s all about.”
