The Avett Brothers last performed at Les Schwab in 2017, following the premiere of documentary “May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers,” which chronicled the making of the band’s Grammy-nominated 2016 album, “True Sadness.” The band is working on new music with “True Sadness” producer Rick Rubin, and recently released the single “Trouble Letting Go.”
