Music Programme 2019

Country, folk and bluegrass are ingredients in a tasty blend by the Mandolin Orange duo from North Carolina. Americana traditions respectfully lifted, the songs are original, and the mood is intimate, melancholy and untrammelled. The vocal harmonies are sweet and precise when Andrew Marlin (mandolin, guitar, vocal) and Emily Frantz (violin, guitar, vocal) get to work. Andrew Marlin writes the songs, and the duo’s latest album Tides of a Teardrop (2019) delivers lyrics of loss and sorrow in a well-turned, unembellished musical setting. Mandolin Orange have been playing since 2009 and have a solid following in USA these days. Internationally they are also making an impression, with a European tour in the spring of 2019. Their Danish debut will be at Tønder Festival. Music critics have heaped praise on Mandolin Orange’s recordings, and Washington Post wrote: “Now a decade into a career that has seen it help redefine American roots music for a younger generation, the duo Mandolin Orange has officially mastered blending engaging storytelling with acoustic elements of bluegrass, folk and country.” Their only Danish festival appearance in 2019.
