The Avett Brothers Add ‘Mission In The Rain’ To Live Repertoire


Earlier this month The Avett Brothers teamed with Warren Haynes to recreate a famed Jerry Garcia Band show at EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia as part of the Dear Jerry: Let’s Play 2 series. The Avetts returned to the road this past weekend and brought one of Garcia’s songs with them.

On Friday night in Jacksonville The Avett Brothers worked the Hunter/Garcia gem “Mission In The Rain” into their set at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. Then, last night, “Mission In The Rain” was performed once more as part of the group’s show in Charlottesville, Virginia. Scott Avett handles lead vocals and both he and his brother Seth Avett play electric guitar throughout the cover.
