A portion of those ticket sales are being donated to American Red Cross Disaster Relief to help those affected by the Oklahoma Tornado. Thanks for giving to those in need and we’ll see you in June at the fest!

Check out our performance on last night’s Late Show with David Letterman and the debut of the Martin D-35 Seth Avett Custom Signature Edition guitar!
We have some very special news today! Seth has been hard at work designing a custom Martin D-35 guitar and today we are ready to share it with you all! Seth has played his Martin D-35 at hundreds of concerts, on three solo records, and on 10 Avett Brothers albums. Seth combined the classic Martin D-35 design with some unique modifications and a couple personal custom touches – including snowflake position markers and an interior label personally signed by Seth – to create his version of the perfect guitar.
“I’ve always seen a Martin Deadnought as the quintessential acoustic guitar; the blue-collar guitar, understated and solid in the hands of Jim Croce or Doc Watson or Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. I’ve always leaned toward the warmth and strength of the D-35. I got my first one, a 1977 model, about twelve years ago, and I’ve been wearing them out and refretting them and wearing them out again ever since. This instrument is a true collaboration between me and the Martin Guitar Company. I can’t wait to find out what songs are waiting in this guitar, for me and anyone who decides to buy one.” -Seth Avett
