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.
