Mandolin Orange, the Chapel Hill-based duo fronted by songwriter Andrew Marlin and vocalist/instrumentalist Emily Frantz, returns to Asheville for a show at Mo Daddy’s Bar following a summer CD release tour.  The duo pairs musical roles to stylize songs inspired by their country, jazz and bluegrass forebears, ornamenting lyrical songs with violin, mandolin, and acoustic and electric guitars. As a band, they are joined by Jeff Crawford on bass and James Wallace on drums.

The band will play a co-bill with Heather Lutrell, crtically acclaimed Atlanta-based singer/songwriter, at 10pm on Thursday, September 2nd at MoDaddy’s in downtown Asheville.  Tickets $5.


Mandolin Orange’s debut album Quiet Little Room released May 1 to critical acclaim and the duo toured throughout the southeast in support of the release.  The slow country duets that make up the album reflect the influence of traditional music on the duo’s contemporary style & songwriting. Mandolin Orange is currently exploring their second album with Jeff Crawford at Arbor Ridge Studios in Chapel Hill.

“Quiet Little Room” can be downloaded on iTunes, hard copies are available through cdbaby.com and local, independent record stores.

You can find Mandolin Orange on myspace and on Facebook.
