Formed in 2009 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Mandolin Orange is songwriter Andrew Marlin (vocals, mandolin, guitar, banjo) and Emily Frantz (vocals, violin, guitar). A decade down the road, a half-dozen albums and a family of their own to contend with, Mandolin Orange makes beautiful, downhome, contemporary acoustic folk music together with deceptive ease. In recent years, the duo has toured throughout the US and Europe including appearances at Austin City Limits, South by Southwest, Edmonton Folk Music Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Newport Folk Festival, Pickathon, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Rooster Walk and MerleFest.
“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.” – The Washington Post
