MUSIC: Folk Friday {The Avett Brothers}

Tomorrow, I'm heading to my first music festival of the summer: The Appel Farm Arts & Music Festival. I decided for today I would feature a musician playing tomorrow. I already covered Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, so today I'll feature The Avett Brothers.

Hailing from North Carolina, these two brothers {Scott & Seth), along with Bob Crawford & Joe Kwon, perform sweet folk-rock - similar, in my mind, to The Wood Brothers or the Fleet Foxes.

Their first album, The Avett Bros., was released in 2000, this was followed by nine more albums until their eleventh one, Emotionalism {2007}, really started getting them some attention. This was followed by The Second Gleam {2008} and I And Love And You {2009}.

Throughout 2009, they opened up for Dave Matthews Band and have been playing various festivals throughout the country for the past couple of years.

Check out their song "Shame" on the album Emotionalism below:
