The Avett Brother’s Tribute Mural
CONCORD — For the past year, Cicada Studios has been working on installing a tribute mural to The Avett Brothers.
The project started with the owner of 22 Union St. approaching Cicada Studios about installing a mural on the side of their building. The wall in question is located at one of the main “entrance points” to downtown Concord, so it seemed a fitting place to pay tribute to the beloved local band The Avett Brothers.
The goal is to have the mural installed in the spring of 2020. learn more at https://www.cicadastudios.net
