Wilson’s World: Earl Scruggs Center’s New Exhibit, An Avett Brothers Retrospective
CHARLOTTE, NC – The Earl Scruggs Center has a new exhibit and Wilson visited with his good friend Daniel Coston to share the story of his work. A Symphony for the Road: An Avett Brothers Retrospective is running through August 6, 2022. This is the first authorized exhibition to detail the ongoing career of one of the most popular musical acts to come from North Carolina. The Avett Brothers began in front of audiences of a couple of dozen to now selling out Madison Square Garden and Red Rocks Amphitheater.
Daniel Coston has documented the monumental growth of the Avett Brothers, from the beginning in the Avett family’s garage in 2002 to selling out nationally known concert halls. His work has been featured in many major publications, TV programs, and documentaries. Coston has worked with the Monkees, Johnny Cash, the Carolina Chocolate Drops, and many more. Throughout the exhibit, visitors will be treated to over fifty photographic prints, many of which have never been seen by the public. Along with the photographs, you can see memorabilia from the collections of Daniel Coston and original Scott Avett concert posters on loan from the collection of Dolphus Ramseur (Ramseur Records).
