In the last decade, The Avett Brothers have released seven full-length albums, four EPs, and a handful of music videos. And from 2002’s Country Was to 2012’s The Carpenter, everything that they have put out has been really solid. But do you know when The Avett Brothers really shine? When they’re doing a live performance. They mix together elements of folk rock, bluegrass, country, pop, punk, and more into their music, which makes their live shows really interesting.
On October 15, The Avett Brothers will release their eighth full-length album, Magpie and the Dandelion, which features their new single, “Another Is Waiting.” But before they do, we thought we would take a look back at 10 of their coolest performances from the last few years. From appearances on late-night talk shows to small, intimate deskside performances in offices, they’ve done a little bit of everything. And whether you’re a longtime fan of theirs or someone who is just hearing them for the first time, you have to see just how great they are live to truly appreciate their sound. Trust us: You will not be disappointed.
