Throwback Thursday: A sit-down with Jim Avett at MerleFest

June 13, 2019

Come Hear NC had the pleasure of sitting down with Jim Avett between one of his sets at MerleFest in April to talk about Doc Watson, his influence and ethos, and why North Carolina is such a special place to be a musician and music lover. Jim’s attended MerleFest for 20 years, as both a performer and a fan.

After the interview, we were treated to an intimate performance of “Old Bones.” Plus, he gave us some tips on how to write a good murder ballad! 

Enjoy both videos below.
