Memphis - Behind The Buzz with The Avett Brothers

Flannel-clad fans inundated St. Louis’ Pageant on September 24 in anticipation of folk virtuosos, The Avett Brothers. Led by crooning brothers Scott and Seth Avett, and joined by bassist Bob Crawford and cellist Joe Kwon, The Avett Brothers spent the bulk of the last decade as an independent cult gem under the guidance of Ramseur Records founder Dolphus Ramseur. Their release under Rick Rubin’s American Recordings label (I and Love and You, 2009) catapulted them from obscurity to boundless popularity, extending their appeal through rock, folk, and country genres. The sold out, ravenous crowd proved it undeniable that this rustic treasure had been discovered.
