Mandolin Orange makes music that WNYC describes as being “laced with bluegrass, country and folk…often wistful and contemplative without being somber, and always firmly grounded in the South.” The duo, comprised of Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz, have just announced the May 5 release of Such Jubilee, their second studio album for Yep Roc Records.

Swirl of updates! Recording + MandoMania + Europe + Summer tour!

We've spent the last few weeks basking in the NC sun, so thoroughly that we haven't shared any updates in awhile! Here's what we've been up to and where we're going!

  • We've spent the last couple of weeks in the studio working on a new album! Super excited with the sounds that are coming together... more to come on that soon :)
  • This weekend Andrew is making a stop at Merlefest to be a part of the venerable Mando Mania lineup. It's an honor for him to share the stage with these mandolin greats, his second year running. If you're in Wilkesboro on Saturday, check out the Creekside Stage at 2pm!
  • Can't stop won't stop! We leave for Europe on Sunday and shows in the UK, The Netherlands and and Germany start May 2! Check out the full schedule and ticket links here.
