Mandolin Orange

Mandolin Orange

Mandolin Orange’s music radiates a mysterious warmth—their songs feel like whispered secrets, one hand cupped to your ear. The North Carolina duo have built a steady and growing fanbase with this kind of intimacy, and on Tides of a Teardrop, released February 1, 2019, it is more potent than ever. By all accounts, it is the duo’s fullest, richest, and most personal effort.

The folk/Americana duo of Andrew Marlin (songwriter, vocals, mandolin, guitar, banjo) and Emily Frantz (vocals, violin, guitar) formed Mandolin Orange 10 years ago in Chapel Hill, where they are still based. They have produced five albums and over the last three years have toured the U.S. and Europe, including appearances at Austin City Limits, SXSW, Edmonton Folk Music Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Newport Folk Festival and North Carolina’s MerleFest.
