The Avett Brothers bring the Legendary Giveback II to North Charleston
Allison Nugent – Wednesday, August 14, 2013
The Grammy-nominated Avett Brothers have announced their return to Charleston and the return of the Legendary Giveback, a music event that benefits family-focused organizations.
Put on in coordination with Cheerwine, the one-night-only show will be held Nov. 14 at the North Charleston Coliseum.
Proceeds from ticket sales for the Legendary Giveback II will go to three family-focused organizations, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Operation Homefront and The Children’s Hospital of South Carolina at the Medical University of South Carolina.
“The response from our fans last year was both humbling and gratifying,” Scott Avett, lead singer and multi-instrumentalist for The Avett Brothers, said in a press release.
For those who won’t be able to attend for one reason or another, Avett Brothers fans will be able to catch the show virtually by pledging hours of community service on the event’s website.
Last year’s show drew more than11,000 fans from 17 countries, in addition to the fans who attended in person.
Cheerwine will also be promoting the concert by placing six specially designed “Hidden Cans” by The Avett Brothers inside select 12-packs throughout the Southeast. Those who find a “Hidden Can” will win two tickets to the Legendary Giveback II concert, a $500 donation towards the charity of their choice and a year-supply of Cheerwine.
The Avett Brothers, described as a “rootsy amalgam of folk, country, bluegrass, rock and pop —with a jab of punk-style dynamics here and there,” have long been favorites in the Charleston area. The North Carolina trio, made up of brothers Scott Avett and Seth Avett along with Bob Crawford, have an album due out in October titled “Magpie and the Dandelion,” which comes on the heels of their Grammy-nominated album “The Carpenter.”
