Avett Brothers Welcome Jim Avett, Debut New Song at Red Rocks

The Avett Brothers wrapped up their three-night stand at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Sunday night, delivering another extensive setlist that featured the second of two debuts during the run and a special appearance from Jim Avett, father of the band’s co-frontmen and namesakes.

After debuting new tune “Roses and Sacrifice” and covering Jerry Garcia’s “Mission in the Rain” on night two, the Avetts offered up another debut, “Orion’s Belt,” in the midst of Sunday’s setlist. The night also featured covers of Chris Cornell, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd and plenty of Avett staples, plus a couple of traditional tunes with the elder Avett, who joined his sons for “Standing in the Need of Prayer” and “Take My Hand Precious Lord.” Watch video of both debuts and both family collaborations below.

Having wrapped up their sting at Red Rocks, The Avett Brothers move to the Northwest for a show at Britt Pavilion in Jacksonville, OR, on July 20.
