GENERAL ADMISSION SEATED

THE MILK CARTON KIDS
THE MILK CARTON KIDS
"Gorgeous contemporary folk" - NPR

"A sweetly dazzling variation on close-harmony vocals, part Simon and Garfunkel and part Everly Brothers, with occasional acoustic prestidigitation" - The New York Times

While The Milk Carton Kids' most obvious frame of musical reference is the classic folk sound of twin acoustic guitars and close harmonies, the band both expand and contradict that rich legacy. The music strikes listeners immediately with its sweet, bluegrass-inflected simplicity, but underneath snake Pattengale's sinuous modal guitar lines, sounding for all the world like a jazzified Bert Jansch dropped in to jam with the Everly Brothers. Their harmonies, too, while recalling classic brother duos from the Louvins to the Everlys, achieve a richness that blends into a vivid singularity. Their new album, The Ash & Clay will be released 3/26 on Anti Records.
THE BAREFOOT MOVEMENT
THE BAREFOOT MOVEMENT
The Barefoot Movement is a foursome from Johnson City, TN. Drawing from the styles of bluegrass, folk, old-time, and Americana, The Barefoot Movement, with their original songs, expressive instrumentation, and interweaving harmonies, converge the old and new, into a style all their own that is certain to be appreciated by all generations. Their second album "Figures of the Year" will be released later this year.
