North Carolina’s Seth and Scott Avett have been at or very near the top rung of Americana music for two decades. They are genre-defying multi-instrumentalists who raised the bar for acoustic music with chill-inducing harmony vocals, country-flavored rock ‘n’ roll and every variation of the above, known and unknown. Great singers, great songwriters.
By the siblings’ side since the earliest days has been Bob Crawford, from New Jersey, who plays upright and electric bass, and violin, and sings. Then there’s cellist Joe Kwon, born in South Korea and brought up not far from the brothers Avett in the Carolinas.
