When you love what you do, it shows. I took my wife and daughters to see The Avett Brothers on August 8th in Charlotte. They're local musicians, and I've grown quite fond of their music and songwriting. And this is coming from a guy who doesn't ordinarily gravitate to Bluegrass (if you look through the other music on this blog you'll understand). Check them out online and on Twitter, and once you get past the idea that maybe Bluegrass isn't cool enough – let the lyrics sink in.
