As if the song “Murder in the City” wasn’t perfect enough…. Watch Brandi Carlile and The Avett Brothers perform together at MerleFest 2019!
Every year, fans of bluegrass, folk, and classic country music gather for MerleFest in North Carolina. The festival, founded in 1988 by Doc Watson, is known for incredible music performances. The 2019 lineup included Amos Lee, Wynonna Judd, and Keb’ Mo’ among many others. There were so many remarkable performances but the best performance of the festival came from Brandi Carlile and The Avett Brothers.
