The Avett Brothers to Headline Blackbird Presents’ Annual ‘Second Weekend at the Saenger’
Concert Series in New Orleans Plus, a Special Opening Performance From New Orleans Music Legends Anders Osborne & Friends Featuring Dave Malone and More!

The Avett Brothers are renowned for their live shows, having perfected a blend of bluegrass picking, country harmonies, and rock & roll energy (Rolling Stone). Three-time GRAMMY Award nominees and members of the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame, their newest album, The Third Gleam (August 2020), debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Americana/Folk Albums chart, #1 Rock Albums and #1 Vinyl Albums.

Between the potency of his richly detailed songwriting, his intensely emotional, soulful vocals, and his piercing, expert guitar work, New Orleans’ Anders Osborne is a true musical treasure. He is among the most original and visionary musicians writing and performing today. Guitar Player calls him “the poet laureate of Louisiana’s fertile roots music scene,” and New Orleans’ Gambit Weekly has honored Osborne as the Entertainer Of The Year.

For more than thirty years, Dave Malone was best known as the guitarist/vocalist and one of the songwriters of the New Orleans band The Radiators. Dave also works with a variety of other musicians in and out of New Orleans including Raw Oyster Cult and Monkey Ranch as well as several of The Last Waltz celebration shows and tours.
