    For nearly two decades, Charlotte photographer Daniel Coston has chronicled the rise of some of the region's biggest bands – the early years of the Avett Brothers, for instance – and some of the state's legends. He has collected many images in his third book, North Carolina Musicians: Photographs and Conversations (McFarland Press). This picture shows the Avett Brothers writing "Talk On Indolence" in Seth Avett's kitchen, near Concord, NC, August 2004.
