Touring in support of the March 17 release of their Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith album, Avett and Mayfield include the Crystal Ballroom as one of only 13 intimate tour stops across the country. We’re proud to be one of the few venues hosting this event based around the beloved music of Portland’s own, Elliot Smith.

Both Avett and Mayfield are ardent fans of Smith and his music, and with Mayfield in the opening slot of previous Avett Brothers concert dates, the two have performed Smith songs live together before. For this upcoming tour, the duo will be joined by bassist Paul Defiglia (The Avett Brothers). In addition to performing Smith songs from their album, Avett and Mayfield will likely sprinkle some solo selections into the set.

Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith was produced by Seth Avett and recorded over the past three years at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC as well as at Avett’s and Mayfield’s homes.

    My best friend is from Ohio and adores Seth. It would be nice to see him without the whole ensemble (even if they are one of the best bands I’ve ever seen live). Her birthdays next month, I’d love to win her tickets :)

    I remember lining up outside the Satyricon for a free Elliott show. I was 4th in line. After growing up with his music, I thought it was a fitting gesture to see him at the Satyricon, a club that embraced him, and where his ‘family’ could gather to see his genius.

    Elliott’s fate was a sad tale, but his memory, and spirit live on. Especially thriving in Portland. I’ve also been a huge Avett’s fan, since they were a little known punk band in NC, before they started on their roots based adventures.

    Being able to see Seth play Elliott, in Portland, would bring life full circle for me, and probably be the highlight of my year.

    This would be awesome

  22. Katie March 24, 2015 at 2:42 pm #

    I’d love the opportunity to see Seth Avett in a more intimate setting. He always does such an amazing job making the crowd feel included at larger/outdoor venues! Thanks for the giveaway!

  26. Hope March 26, 2015 at 3:09 pm #

    I would love to hear them since I really enjoy Elliot Smith’s music and wish he were still here to record. This sounds like a great concert!

  27. Ross March 26, 2015 at 3:11 pm #

    I’ve been listening to the new album on repeat since it came out. Would love to see it performed live!

  28. Joseph Adducci March 26, 2015 at 3:45 pm #

    Sounds like fun

  32. Laura Luther March 26, 2015 at 5:52 pm #

    Yes to Elliot Smith songs and yes to Scott Avett storming the stage in anger of his brother playing with someone else.

  33. Kelly McCrillis March 26, 2015 at 6:29 pm #

    Just listened to a marimba cover album of Elliot Smith, and I’m in the mood to listen to Avett and Mayfield… coincidence? Maybe, but I would still love to go.

  34. ryan March 27, 2015 at 1:07 pm #
