The Avett Brothers from Concord, North Carolina is made up of two brothers, Scott Avett (banjo) and Seth Avett (guitar), as well as Bob Crawford (double bass) and Joe Kwon (cello). Mike Marsh (drums) and Paul Delfigia (keyboard) are touring members of the band, with Kwon featured on recordings from 2007’s Emotionalism and later.
I saw them at Oya Festival in Oslo a few years ago, a great concert.
The Avett Brothers have spent much of the past decade nurturing their skill as songwriters, along with their skills as vocalists and musicians. That said, most of their shows include very fine cover songs. I have dug up some fine interpretations of Bob Dylan songs.
