Avett Brothers bassist Bob Crawford walks for St. Jude benefit

Posted By on Fri, Nov 9, 2012 at 11:23 AM

Ever since August of 2011, when it was announced that Avett Brothers bassist Bob Crawford's daughter was battling brain cancer, fans have shown their support and inquired for updates. Hallie, who is about to turn 3, has finished her chemotherapy and recently started preschool, but that doesn't mean there aren't other children who need help.


Crawford has organized a team to raise money to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. A walk is scheduled in Raleigh on Nov. 17, 2013, to celebrate Hallie's third birthday. If you'd like to support his team, you can find more information here.

"The support Hallie and our family have received from the music community has been astounding," Crawford says. "Fans, friends, fellow musicians, writers and producers have lifted us up and carried us through these dark days. Of course, we believe strongly in the power of prayer and we ask everyone to say a prayer for Hallie and all the other children who are fighting cancer."

When Hallie was first diagnosed, Crawford went on hiatus from touring with the Avett Brothers. He recently rejoined the group, after one year away, as Hallie's condition improved. Crawford recently spoke to CL about Hallie for our cover story on the Avett Brothers.
