Seth Avett + Jessica Lea Mayfield Announce Tour In Support of Elliott Smith Covers LP
Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield recently announced they’ll be releasing an Elliott Smith covers album, and now they will hit the road on an accompanying, 13-stop tour. ‘An Evening With Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield’ will kick off March 10 in Charlotte, N.C. Tickets go on sale Jan. 23 on the duo’s website.
“With a considerable portion of the setlist being comprised of covers by another artist, Jessica and I are certainly heading into unchartered territory,” Avett said in a statement. “I’m expecting these performances to be among the most intimate of our lives to date.”
With that said, Avett and Mayfield will be joined onstage by fellow Avett Brothers bandmate, Paul Defiglia, on bass. In addition to their selection of Smith covers, the singer-songwriters will also include a few solo performances in their set lists.
‘Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith’ lands in stores on March 17 via Ramseur Records.
