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.

Holland + Germany takeover, farewell UK!

We finished nine surprisingly sunny days in England and we're really excited to be spending the next week in Holland and Germany! We had a quick stopover in Belgium and we've gotten to see lots of nifty sites despite the busy schedule, thanks to the most wonderful tour manager. Here in the Netherlands EVERYONE ride bikes EVERYWHERE (the coolest). Here are our remaining dates and some pictures from the journey so far!
