NCMA Summer Concerts Series: First Aid Kit, with Jade Bird @ NC Museum of Art
Jun 8 @ 8:00 pm
NCMA Summer Concerts Series: First Aid Kit, with Jade Bird @ NC Museum of Art | Raleigh | North Carolina | United States

Thanks to Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit, “Swedish Folk Americana” is now an actual thing. Klara and Johanna Söderberg recall feeling like outsiders for finding 1970s U.S. culture “exotic” and for obsessing over country stars like Johnny Cash. In their teens they began drawing lyrical inspiration from Swedish folk stories while setting their songs to a rootsy North American sound. Their recorded videos won them spots on Late Night with David Letterman and Ellen and earned multiple Swedish Grammy Awards.

Celebrated for soaring, exquisite harmonies, the duo’s live performances moved Patti Smith and Emmylou Harris to tears. First Aid Kit now returns to the U.S. to debut an acclaimed fourth album, Ruins, which features REM guitarist Peter Buck and Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche. Backed by pedal steel, bass, keyboards, and guitar, First Aid Kit’s live shows transfix audiences with everything from lilting ballads to a head-banging Black Sabbath cover—and their tribute to the #MeToo Movement, “You Are the Problem Here.”

NCMA Summer Concerts Series: Mandolin Orange @ NC Museum of Art
Jun 23 @ 8:00 pm
NCMA Summer Concerts Series: Mandolin Orange @ NC Museum of Art | Raleigh | North Carolina | United States

The website All Music says the Chapel Hill–based folk duoMandolin Orange draws “from wells both old and new, offering up a heady mix of bluegrass, gospel, folk, country, and pop that invokes the earthy timelessness (and effortless harmonies) of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, the sweet unpredictability of Nickel Creek, and the rich, gothic Americana of The Civil Wars.”

The duo’s 2013 album This Side of Jordan was named by NPR Music as one of the year’s top 10 folk and Americana albums. Ever since they’ve been building a devoted following, performing on big stages at Bonnaroo and Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater, and opening for the Avett Brothers’ 2017 New Year’s Eve show at PNC Arena. Their most recent release, Blindfaller, features a full-band sound and has garnered praise from critics throughout the land.
