You don’t need much more than a banjo, some good tunes and mountain views to have a good time. So it is a darn good thing that the Ride Sun Valley Festival is bringing all that and more on July 13 when the world-famous, energetic, and wickedly awesome Avett Brothers will be gracing our mountains with their music.
In case you don’t know who they are, you might want to watch this performance from the Grammy’s when they performed with Mumford and Sons and the legendary Bob Dylan. Beware, this video is known to cause chills.
The Avett Brothers are known for their rowdy and infectious stage shows with their music categorized as anything and everything from bluegrass to country and punk to pop, folk rock and even honky-tonk and ragtime. They will bring not only a banjo and good tunes but North Carolina-brothers, Seth on guitar and Scott on the banjo. As well as Bob Crawford on the stand-up bass, Jow Kwon on the cello and Jacob Edwards on drums. There will be absolutely nothing better to do on July 13 but listen, dance, enjoy, party and tap your toes to the sweet sounds of the Avett Brothers.
Ride Sun Valley will bring a week of bike riding, racing, and celebrating so why not kick it off right with one of the best concerts of the summer? A concert that very well might be once-in-a-lifetime. The Sun Valley Pavilion will provide an awesome venue for the show with tickets costing a mere 40 bucks, with limited view lawn tickets only costing $25. (For ticket information go to www.sunvalleycenter.org) Bring your dance partner and your buddies because the Avett Brothers will definitely be bringing a good time.
Just ask one of their biggest fans, local singer and Avett Brothers aficionado, Caroline.
