“We’re so happy to be partnering with a local nonprofit to help New Mexicans,” said Shane Cadwell, general manager at Santa Ana Star Center. “The Avett Brothers combine bluegrass, country, folk, rock and roll, indie rock honky tonk to create some of the most novel sounds in music today. They’ll definitely put on one heck of a show for fans and supporters of Goodwill.”
The Avett Brothers have played music together since childhood and have grown to become one of the most highly coveted folk rock collaborations in the country. The Avett Brothers are a regular at some of the country’s most noted annual music festivals including Bonaroo, Coachella Valley Music Festival and the Newport Folk Festival. The band’s latest album Magpie and the Dandelion hit shelves in October of 2013 and peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard top 200 charts.
