Old-timey folk music is typically absent from the mainstream's musical lexicon. It's a strange style of music that harkens back to a simpler times when people weren't connected and intertwined by technology. The lack of folk music has almost created a need for the genre, though, and this is partly why The Avett Brothers have found success. They're one of the few folk bands around that has brought back nostalgic instrumentation and simple songs that are easy to like. The band, from Concord, North Carolina, does, however, incorporate modern influences into its songs to add a bit more relevance to the music and make it sound like folk music that's clearly from the 21st century.
Burlington, North Carolina band Big Something has captured the hearts of 21st century jam band fans, winning the Home Grown Music Network's Best Studio Album in 2010. Their debut album, Stories From the Middle of Nowhere covers a wide range of musical styles, from alternative rock to blues and soul. The band is particularly fond of detailing various aspects of their Southern lifestyle, painting a fun, colorful picture of an alternative Southern way of living.
