DESCRIPTION

Deb and I met Jim Avett almost seven years ago at an Avett Brothers concert in Washington, DC. It was a family trip that included our daughter and son-in-law and our then-infant granddaughter. Lily was being fussy during the show, so I took her out into the lobby for a bottle. As she settled down, another gent sitting on the bench struck up a conversation with me about the joys of grandkids. That, of course, was Jim. By the time we were done talking, I had invited Jim and his wife Susie to visit with us on Jupiter, and had arranged for a show at Club Cafe and secured him a spot on the Saturday Light Brigade radio show. Since that initial trip, Jim has become a familiar performer in and near Western PA, playing regularly not only in Pittsburgh but also in Edinboro, Erie, Steubenville and even the Great Blue Heron festival. Jim is right up there among the leaders of the Jupiter frequent-stayer club, and we enjoy his company and his performance every time.

If you have ever seen Jim perform, you know that the stories are as much a part of the show as the music. Come listen to the words both sung and spoken, and understand for yourself why the acorns have not fallen far from the tree.

Ali Parker from Tiger Maple String Band will be with Jim on fiddle!

Jim and Ali will perform first! Local honky tonkers Cledus and The Cadillacs will kick it up a bit to finish off the night with a set of their rowdy country tunes.

Tickets are just $12 in advance, $17 at the door. Ages 21+. Doors at 6 PM, music starts at 7 PM.
