the Avett brothers
Alt country superstars THE AVETT BROTHERS combine bluegrass, country, punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, indie rock, honky tonk, and ragtime to produce a novel sound described by the San Francisco Chronicle as having the "heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision of Buddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, and the raw energy of the Ramones.” Impossible to pigeon hole, the Grammy nominated and Americana Music Award winning Avett brothers Seth (guitar) and Scott (banjo) team up with Bob Crawford (Bass), Joe Kwon (cello) and Mike Marsh (drums) to perform one of the most popular and exciting live shows you’ll experience. Get your tickets before they sell out!
CHE APALACHE will open the show with their special brand of Latingrass, a mix of South American music and bluegrass. Hailing from Buenos Aires, Argentina, their repertoire ranges from songs featuring a variety of South American rhythms to a capella southern mountain gospel songs in four part harmony.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a DANCE SHOW!
The Festival venue will be configured differently for this concert to allow for an increased dancing/standing area in front of the stage. There will still be adequate sections for blankets, low chairs, high chairs and reserved patron and sponsor seating, as well as seated availability in the grandstands.
