Local bands covering local bands is always awesome, but when the most popular band out of our state in recent years covers a song from one of the best albums in present-day memory we have to take special notice. Scott Avett of Concord band The Avett Brothers did a nice cover on Crackerfarm of old tour-mates and fellow record label buddies Bombadil. The song he covered was a spectacular representation of “Marriage” off of Bombadil’s Tarpits and Canyonlands album.
It is hard to believe it has been a year since Bombadil last performed in concert and even less time since Tarpits was released. Hopefully this will ease your soul until the band can hopefully one day make a comeback.
