Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield Annouce U.S. Tour

Seth Avett of the Avett Brothers and Jessica Lea Mayfield have announced “An Evening with Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield” that will be presented in 13 intimate concert venues across the country.  The tour kicks off March 10 in Charlotte, NC, and will wrap up in Los Angeles, CA on March 31.  The tour will be a promotion of their new album that is a tribute to Elliott Smith.

Both Avett and Mayfield are ardent fans of Smith and his music, and with Mayfield in the opening slot of previous Avett Brothers concert dates, the two have performed Smith songs live together before.  For this upcoming tour, the duo will be joined by bassist Paul Defiglia (The Avett Brothers).  In addition to performing Smith songs from their album, Avett and Mayfield will likely sprinkle some solo selections into the set.
