The Étude Sessions Presents: Jim Avett
Tickets for this show are $20 Public / $10 Student | Available Online and in person at the Étude Schools

Jim Avett of Concord, North Carolina, is the son of a Methodist minister and a classical pianist who grew up in a home full of love and music, a home where he learned the importance of hard work and honest living. He and his wife instilled these same values in their children, tempered with a lot of fun, and of course, music. Jims guitar was an ever present instrument, and there was always singing.

As much as he enjoyed writing and performing music, Jim put his family first and spent 35 years running his welding company, building bridges along much of the east coast in order to provide for them. After retiring from welding, he returned to music and recorded Jim Avett and Family, a collection of gospel music, with his children, Bonnie, Scott and Seth in 2008. (Scott and Seth are core members of The Avett Brothers, who helped establish The Étude Sessions in Season 3.) Soon after, in 2010, he released Tribes, a collection of original tunes ranging from soulful love ballads like the title track to the more lighthearted, "Fight with a Bottle of Booze". In Second Chance, Jims latest offering, the influences of classic country and early rock and roll are apparent. Once again, he draws on life experiences to write songs about love ("Pictures in the Attic"), boyhood memories, ("Willard"), and loss ("Holy Ground").

Proceeds from The Etude Sessions ensure transformative experiences for students in the arts and academics. Students participate in college readiness programming, field experiences, creative writing festivals, dance workshops, and engineering in the community. The intention of The Etude Sessions is to ensure that Sheboygan has continued growth in "Good Music + Good Cause" - Thanks for being part of it!
