high country avetts

one of our reasons for dropping by telluride last week was that the avett brothers were playing a free show in the mountain village on wednesday.  i’ve grown to really enjoy their music over the years.  but what’s the best about the avetts is their live performance.





i’ve shot and written about this band numerous times, so i feel like i’m just beating the drum here, but their intensity is no joke.





you just have to see them live.












one thing they did mention a few times was that they were really feeling the altitude.  telluride mountain village is well over 10,000 ft.  and though their music lacked no heart, it wasn’t as spot-on as they usually are.  but no matter.  i still enjoyed it thoroughly.

if you ever have the chance, GO SEE THIS BAND.  you will not regret it.
