– A Joyous Concert of the Band’s Greatest Hits At The Stunning Concert Venue –
Three-time Grammy Award nominees The Avett Brothers’ energetic and eclectic combination of bluegrass, country, punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, indie rock, honky-tonk, and ragtime has been delighting concert audiences nationwide since the band’s founding in 2001. On July 7, 2019, they celebrated their sixth consecutive year of sold-out concerts at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre, the world’s only naturally-occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheater, located just outside of Denver. Over 9,000 fans danced, sang, and cheered — it was the perfect way to spend a warm summer evening. Now, that magical night is available for PBS viewers. THE AVETT BROTHERS AT RED ROCKS is part of special programming beginning Sunday, Dec. 6 at 10:30 p.m. on Southern Oregon PBS.
THE AVETT BROTHERS AT RED ROCKS features performances of “Live and Die,” “Down with the Shine,” “Head Full of Doubt,” “High Steppin,’” “Ain’t No Man,” “Laundry Room” and more.
"What stands out most about the Avett Brothers is that they are real people who play real music,” said Terry Lickona, executive producer of AUSTIN CITY LIMITS. “Their live shows are always magical. Their songs are honest and intensely personal in a way that anyone can relate to. If you're one of their hardcore fans, you feel like you're all part of one big, very special family. They've been AUSTIN CITY LIMITS favorites for over 10 years.”
