It’s the return of the Avett Brothers! With the addition of this show, set for July 4, the Summerfest headline acts have all been booked. Opening for the group will be Brandi Carlisle and Warren Haynes. It’s been thirteen years since the band hit the road, in support of their first album. It was titled Country Was, and has since been re-released. One year later, the group would go on to complete their second disk.
By 2007, people started to notice how talented the Avett Brothers were. That year, they were up for an “Americana Music Association” award for Group of the Year. They won that honor. They moved up to a larger record label, and joined forces with a very talented record producer, in time to make album number three. It would be called “I and Love and You.” That disk hit the top ten, and was nominated for a Grammy. In thirteen years, the band has released eight albums, and four EP’s. Catch them at Summerfest 2015!
