The Long Center presents the Avett Brothers plus Asleep at the Wheel, Saturday, March 3 in Dell Hall.

The Avett Brothers’ music has roots in traditional folk and bluegrass, but also captures the high spirits and no-boundaries attitude of rock & roll—which is appropriate, since rock is where brothers Scott Avett and Seth Avett first cut their teeth as musicians. Their most recent album, True Sadness, achieved the group’s highest career debut to date, dominating multiple charts. Produced by Rick Rubin, the album arrived at #1 on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart, #1 Top Rock Albums Chart, #1 on the Digital Albums Chart and #3 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart.

In addition, True Sadness garnered overwhelming critical acclaim, with many considering it their finest release yet. Rolling Stone extolled it as “Their most heart-baring LP,” while Paste dubbed it, “Their most surprising album.” People claimed, “The sincerity of the lyrics keeps the boys true to their roots,” and Interview wrote, “As a whole, True Sadness is the band’s most intimate and exploratory album to date.” The Current summed up its impact asserting, “The Avett Brothers have emerged as the key act redefining the genre.”

For our 10th Anniversary Celebration, The Avett Brothers will be joined by the 10-Time Grammy-winning Kings of Western Swing, Asleep at the Wheel! Local Legend and frontman Ray Benson describes their signature sound as “jazz with a cowboy hat.” Don’t miss these hometown heroes—Asleep at the Wheel is a thrill to experience live.
