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.

We continued what we hope will be a tradition of recording tunes on a treacherous hillside above Merlefest with Peter Rowan. This time, with less hair and more harmonies.

Sending out thanks to Dan Schram for dreaming up magical things like this, and making them happen. Read his Merlefest 2016 experience in the Indy Week, here.
