“It’s too late to be the first to love The Avett Brothers. When a band starts racking up most-mentioned-on-NPR awards, gets mentioned in novels and becomes a reference in “Dexter,” restless music lovers know it’s time to find a new darling.
Congratulations: The new darling plays Tuesday at Atwood’s Tavern, and its name is Buffalo Stack. And Tania Stack, fiddle player for The Avett Brothers, is onstage fiddling, singing and serving as co-namesake (along with husband Andy) to really make you swoon.
The band’s eponymous first album was released last month, giving this sophisticated, New York-bred Americana band the sheen of a summer romance with such accomplished musicality that you know you can love it for the long haul.” – Mark Levy, Cambridge Day
