The Avett Brothers.

With Emotionalism, the lastest release on Ramseur Records by The Avett Brothers, the grey areas in which their music exists have become blurred even further. The new album, which will be available for purchase on May 15th, covers that part of the spectrum ranging from banjo picking and vocal harmonies to straight up rock and roll madness.

Their live show is a maddening event as well. Recently, The Avett Brothers played a completely packed show at The Georgia Theater here in Athens. Not only was the theater filled to the brim, but there was not a single person in the audience standing with arms folded. The entire crowd was swaying to each and every song, and mind you, these are songs played by three guys armed with acoustic guitar, banjo, and upright bass. Not exactly the kind of instrumentation I would expect to make a crowd go absolutely insane.

The Avett Brothers will be playing a ton of shows this spring and summer, and a lot of festival dates. So if it's sunny and warm in your part of the world when they roll through, be sure to see them perform live! You will not regret it!

I am presenting The Avett Brothers in Vancouver, B.C. on Sept 2 at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre. It is a new market for the Brothers. Trying to go viral. Help spread the word.
