Mignonette is a 2004 album by The Avett Brothers. It was named after an English yacht which sank off the Cape of Good Hope, leaving the crew of four stranded on a lifeboat. The cabin boy, Richard Parker, was killed and eaten by the others, two of whom were later put on trial and convicted of murder (see Regina v. Dudley & Stephens).[2][3]

The album was written and produced by Seth Avett, Scott Avett, and Bob Crawford of The Avett Brothers with additional vocals from their sister Bonnie Avett Rini[4] and their father Jim Avett, who wrote and performed "Signs" in the 1970s.[5]
