The Avett Brothers play "I and Love and You" on the David Letterman show. This is mountain music all dressed up for a big New York City television show, but at heart these two brothers from North Carolina are country boys. Their guitar-picking and harmonies come from the hills and hollows of another time.
Summer is a time for big outdoor music festivals. Bonneroo is a more relaxed setting than the NBC studios. Here we go backstage and onstage with the Avett Brothers for some nice, acoustic fingerpicking in the sunshine. Give a listen.
