Avetts in October #3: The Beach

us 4 16

April, 2016

In anticipation of The Avett Brothers concert on October 25th, I am writing a series of blog posts connecting some of their lyrics to words of some of my favorite authors.

“The sound of the sea is the most time-effacing sound there is.”                 E.B. White

I grew up minutes from the beach in Jacksonville, Florida. White is right. The sound of the sea brings me a peace that takes me back to childhood. There is nothing like the salty air blowing your hair, the ebb and flow of the tide, the calling of the gulls to each other.

At the Beach is one of my favorite Avett Brothers songs.

Now they’re under, under, underneath a big umbrella

Summer, summer, summer time to help us forget, nine to fives

We have got to leave all that behind
