The Long Center is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit dedicated to broadening the appreciation and enhancing the enjoyment of the cultural arts.



The Long Center presents the Avett Brothers plus Asleep at the Wheel, Saturday, March 3 in Dell Hall.

The Avett Brothers’ music has roots in traditional folk and bluegrass, but also captures the high spirits and no-boundaries attitude of rock & roll—which is appropriate, since rock is where brothers Scott Avett and Seth Avett first cut their teeth as musicians. Their most recent album, True Sadness, achieved the group’s highest career debut to date, dominating multiple charts. Produced by Rick Rubin, the album arrived at #1 on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart, #1 Top Rock Albums Chart, #1 on the Digital Albums Chart and #3 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart. In addition, True Sadness garnered overwhelming critical acclaim, with many considering it their finest release yet.

For our 10th Anniversary Celebration, The Avett Brothers will be joined by the 10-Time Grammy-winning Kings of Western Swing, Asleep at the Wheel! Local Legend and front man Ray Benson describes their signature sound as “jazz with a cowboy hat.” Don’t miss these hometown heroes—Asleep at the Wheel is a thrill to experience live.
