About Joe Kwon

Hey! My name is Joseph Kwon () and I am (among other things) the cellist for The Avett Brothers. Never in my life would I have dreamed of being in the position I'm in now. After all, it's not often a South Korean-born High Point, NC-raised kid who grew up mostly behind a cello reaches the international stage as a standing cellist!

Taste On Tour

When I'm not on tour, I find myself trying to find creative ways to bring my worlds together. I am a champion of Raleigh, especially the amazing food community that calls it home. That's why I agreed to help develop Transfer Company Food Hall in Olde East Raleigh as a gathering place to share a meal, and idea, and a story.
