The third Avett, non-sibling Bob Crawford, should be back on the road with the act. He has been in recent shows, after taking time away to deal with the serious medical issues that his young daughter, Hallie, has faced.
The Avetts have not played Southwest Virginia since a November 2011 show at Virginia Tech’s Burress Hall Auditorium. Read the review of that show.
