The Avett Brothers
Saturday, July 27, 2013
“The Avett Brothers were the first band I ever booked for this festival. I had worked with them on a festival in Jackson Hole, and after a memorable gondola ride up the mountain, I just knew they would find a home and a welcoming family at Fort Adams. You see, the Brothers are just that, Family. Since that first show, we have all grown up together both personally and professionally. They are loyal, they are kind, they have trusted me when they had no reason to and best of all they can flat out play.
Whether it be on a stage, on the roof, on a scissor lift, or the backstage lawn just for fun, they’ve basically done it all at Newport except for one thing, headline. Thankfully that will change this summer. Please welcome home The Avett Brothers.”
