Michael Weintrob just got back from the Suwannee River festival where he set up a portrait booth back stage to capture the headliners up close and personal.

Here are a few shots of Scott Avett, from the Avett Brothers, the folk-rock band who gained massive exposure this year when they played with Bob Dylan at the 2011 Grammy Awards.  They had the opportunity to perform among headline vetrans like Mick Jagger and Barbara Streisand at the awards show.

But instead of a special tribute to acoustic music like at the Grammy’s, the Suwannee River festival was all about acoustic music, and was an amazing way to kick off spring.

This first shot features Michael’s signature style of shooting a multiple exposure of the musician and their instrument.  This is part of his new coffee table book series coming out soon called InstrumentHead, “where their head’s really at”.  Stay tuned for news about the book release and accompanying exhibition.
