Listen for the cue to call and dial (603)356-9930, and you could be heading to the show!

The Avett Brothers – Playing music together since childhood, Scott and Seth Avett set their sights on a more permanent musical partnership in the 1990’s and have taken their unique folk rock and bluegrass sound to amazing heights.

Coming off the release of their latest album True Sadness, with two Grammy Award nominations, the Avett Brothers have become an integral part of the love of music movement stretching the globe, priding themselves on breaking down the “smoke and mirrors” of traditional entertainment, leaving behind the true beauty of the song. If you are looking for the excitement that follows a song – a song that sings to your heart and dances with your soul, you’ll find it June 3rd when the Avett Brothers take the stage.
