Trivia Tuesday: Justin Vernon's North Carolina Ties

October 15, 2019

Before there was Bon Iver or Megafaun, Justin Vernon, Phil Cook, Brad Cook, and Joe Westerlund existed as the folk group DeYarmond Edison. Their short-lived, Raleigh N.C. based tenure gained a cult following, and their 2006 split resulted in a creative micro-burst. The Cook Brothers and Westerlund formed the freak-folk trio Megafaun and Justin Vernon retreated to his home state of Wisconsin to create his now world-famous indie act Bon Iver. 

Justin Vernon returns to Raleigh with Bon Iver this weekend. Catch them at PNC Arena on Saturday 10/19.
