The Avett Brothers are riding the crest of the modern Americana music wave. John Hall, after a stint in Congress, is back leading Orleans and singing a song so catchy that simply to mention it would glue it to your eardrums for the rest of the day. Glen Phillips is leading Toad The Wet Sprocket after a long layoff and successful Kickstarter campaign that launched their latest album, New Constellation.
What do they all have in common? They'll all be performing in Connecticut in August, and they're all on today's mid-summer music show (and they all mention Elton John in this show. Go figure!).
