NewSong is excited to announce the upcoming concert, ‘An Evening of Story & Song with Jim Avett’ on Saturday, June 6th in the beautiful and acoustically rich Sanctuary of downtown Asheville’s Central United Methodist Church (27 Church Street). The concert begins at 7pm and is presented by Central United Methodist Church, in association with the Orange Peel, WNCW, NewSong Music and the Asheville Area Arts Council. Tickets are $17 in advance and $20 the day of show, and are available for purchase online at TheOrangePeel.net. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity.

JimAvettThe son of a Methodist minister and a classical pianist, Jim Avett, of Concord, NC, grew up in a home full of love and music, learning the importance of hard work and honest living. He and his wife instilled these same values in their children – including sons and musicians Seth and Scott of the Avett Brothers – and tempered them with a lot of fun and music. His guitar was an ever present instrument, and there was always singing.

As much as he enjoyed writing and performing his music, Avett put his family first and spent 35 years running his welding company, building bridges along much of the east coast in order to provide for them. After retiring from welding, he returned to music and recorded Jim Avett and Family in 2008, a collection of gospel music, with his children, Bonnie, Scott and Seth. In 2010 he returned with Tribes, a collection of original tunes, followed by 2012’s Second Chance, which draws heavily on classic country and early rock and roll influences.

Avett now tours across the country, performing in listening rooms and festivals from the Southeast to Pacific Northwest to New England. His shows are a combination of beloved country tunes, gospel, original ballads and the stories he tells to introduce them.

“Jim Avett is the patriarchal archetype of a Southern man doing right by his family and his own values. His humility is palpable; his love for his roots, exceptional,” writes Encore.
