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" features performances of “Live and Die,” “Down with the Shine,” “Head Full of Doubt,” “High Steppin,’” “Ain’t No Man,” “Laundry Room” and more.
