The Avett Brothers will perform at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina on All Hallows Eve - October 31st. The folk rock band released its 10th album, Closer Than Together, this month and it’s already topping charts and selling like crazy. They have a huge fan base here in North Carolina, their home state, and they have an equally large and devoted following worldwide. WNCW music hosts have been spinning tunes by the Avett Brothers for many years, and we’re playing songs from Closer Than Together on the daily.
