Mandolin Orange & Charlie Parr
@The Heights Theatre
Saturday 4/13/2019 4:00 PM
Mandolin Orange’s music radiates a mysterious warmth —their songs feel like whispered secrets, one hand cupped to your ear. This weekend you'll be able to experience this when they make their way to The Height's Theatre this weekend with guest country blues musician Charlie Parr. NPR (National Public Radio) says “Mandolin Orange is a slow-burning, steadily rising folk duo...they've mastered a largely acoustic sound that exudes gentle elegance.” "Engineered to settle worried minds, slow the blood and lend an empathetic ear" with "songs about life lessons that feel lived-in and hard-won."
The North Carolina duo have built a steady and growing fanbase with this kind of intimacy, and on Tides of A Teardrop, that came out in February, it's more potent than ever. They describe this album, by all accounts as their fullest, richest, and most personal effort.
