This marks the group’s first musical and a whole new interpretation of their celebrated catalog.

Drawing from The Avett Brothers’ vast body of workSwept Away tells the story of a violent storm that sinks a whaling ship, and the four surviving souls — a young man in search of adventure, his older brother who has sworn to protect him, a captain at the end of a long career at sea, and a worldly first mate who has fallen from grace — who each face a reckoning: How far will I go to stay alive? And can I live with the consequences?

Swept Away is produced by special arrangement with Matthew Masten, Sean Hudock, and MWM Live.
