Watch Out! The Avett Brothers and Brandi Carlile – “Keep On The Sunny Side” – David Letterman

The Avett Brothers and Brandi Carlile: "Keep On The Sunny Side"

The Avett Brothers and Brandi Carlile too to the always supportive Letterman stage in the Ed Sullivan Theatre in mid-town Manhatten to perform the quintessential American song, “Keep On The Sunny Side.”

The Ada Blenkhorn penned the Gospel tune in 1899 inspired by her disabled nephew who always wanted his wheelchair pushed down “the sunny side” of the street.

The Avetts and Brandi Carlile perform it pretty much as the Carter Family did when they famously recorded it in 1928. They look to be having a great time with Brandi flanked at a single mic with Seth on guitar and Scott on autoharp and rounded out by Bob Crawford on stand-up bass and Joe Kwon on cello.

    This is a beautiful performance. The Avett Brothers can do no wrong in my book. My husband and I walked down the aisle to one of their songs on our wedding day!
