Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

David & Valerie Mayfield/Jim Avett

When: Sat., Aug. 17, 8 p.m. 2013

David and Jessica Lea Mayfield are off making new music and getting ready for a tour while the Avett Brothers are doing the same and riding a wave of new found fame. However, this show is not for them — it’s parents night at the Beachland Tavern. That’s right the parents of these fantastic artists will come together for one spectacular night of experienced bluegrass playing. David and Valerie Mayfield sound as good as they did when the full family was together playing in Kent and after seeing the couple together it’s obvious where the children got their talent from. And to have Jim Avett join them all the way from North Carolina is a special treat indeed. The children of these two music families have played together numerous times, both on stage and in small trailers playing folk classics for a viewing YouTube audience. Now the parents have a chance to show off their chops as well. The fact that these two families, with such rich music backgrounds, have found each other and stayed close friends so many states away is heart warming in itself, and now they are willing to share that warmth with all of us tonight.
