North Carolina’s folk-rockers The Avett Brothers are coming to Vancouver next spring.
The “Ain’t No Man” musicians are set to perform live at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Thursday, May 14, and you can expect to hear tracks from the band’s latest album, Closer Than Together, which dropped in October.
Already, “Roses and Sacrifice,” “Trouble Letting Go,” “Neapolitan Sky,” and “High Steppin’” are proving to be favourites among fans of The Avett Brothers’ bluegrass, country, punk, rock, and ragtime melodies.
The group rose to fame back in 2009 with their major-label debut, “I and Love and You,” which landed the No. 16 spot on the Billboard Top 200, and was followed by “The Carpenter” and “Magpie and the Dandelion.”
In 2016, True Sadness was met with major acclaim, receiving accolades such as No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart, No. 1 Top Rock Albums Chart, No. 1 Digital Albums Chart, No. 3 on Billboard Top 200, and scoring two Grammy nominations.
