On this day in Avett Bros History! The Avett Bros meet Jessica Lea Mayfield

November 16, 2006 Kent, OH.  Jessica Lea Mayfield (Chittlin) opened for The Avett Brothers at The Kent Stage Theater. The Avett Brothers setlist from that night is here.

After that night a friendship was formed and they would eventually tour together, join each other on stage and Seth and Jessica would record an album of Elliott Smith Covers released in 2015 which is available here. Jessica released a new album recently which Seth appears on a couple songs. I highly recommend buying it and she is out on tour now also. For Tour info and to buy the new album go here. Below is a look back at some Avett Bros and Jessica videos over the years.
