The Yonder Mountain String Band (Colorado’s Bluegrass Jam Band) somehow convinced the high society types up at the Crested Butte to throw a hoedown.

One of the hardest playing and most exciting groups on the newgrass scene. Do yourself a favor and pay the bargain price of $15 (they’re giving it away) and go see the show. You can thank me later.

Avett Brothers in Athens

Avett Brothers Concert 2/24/10 Review
Via our Appalachian Correspondent, Amy Jones

The Avett Brothers concert on February 24, 2010 in Athens, Ohio was packed with their ever- enthusiastic fans. Coming back from an almost two month break, the bands expected high-energy level wasn’t fully felt until the second half when “I killed Sally’s Lover” was played. With that song, the Brothers were back.

The Ohio University Memorial Auditorium worked well for the Avett Brothers. The sound was cohesive and enjoyable from almost anywhere in the auditorium. A house drummer was used in lieu of Scott or Seth Avett. This kept them from scurry between songs. Aside from the new face at the drums, the focus remained on the music.

The set list was lightly peppered with new material: Four in all from their latest album, “I and Love and You”. Despite the lack of new material the fans were gifted with a rarely performed favorite “November Blue”. The choices for set list set the tone from the beginning as almost melancholy. I did say, almost. The sincerity of the Avett Brothers lyrics pulls us back from the brink by reminding us that the humanity that took us there can save us. This talent is probably a big reason the group appeals to so many. I know it’s why I count myself a fan.
