The Avett Brothers will headline the "Concert for Hurricane Florence Relief" at Minges Coliseum on Tuesday, November 13th, 2018. Future Islands and Valient Thorr, both illustrious bands with connections to eastern North Carolina, will perform in the benefit show.
Seth Avett of The Avett Brothers said "We are honored by the opportunity to contribute to our friends and neighbors affected by Hurricane Florence. We hope this performance not only provides some financial relief for victims of the storm but also is an occasion to celebrate the resilience of the people of North Carolina. We can't wait to return to the eastern part of the state!"
The band is made up of two brothers, Scott Avett (ECU Alumnus) and Seth Avett, who play the banjo and guitar respectively, and Bob Crawford who plays the stand-up bass. Two other musicians are members of the group: Joe Kwon on cello and Jacob Edwards on drums.
ECU Chancellor Cecil Staton said "It's an honor to be able to contribute our facilities and the talents of our staff to help raise funds for Hurricane Florence victims. We are so thankful to The Avett Brothers for their willingness to do this for our region of the state. We are particularly proud to be welcoming one of our own, Scott Avett and other ECU Alumni, back to campus. We are proud of Scott's incredible career and accomplishments and gratified he and others are willing to do this show at ECU for hurricane relief efforts."
