If you are on the island, come on out to Books to be Red this coming Sunday, October 2, for a Potluck Dinner at 4 o'clock...and a concert by Mandolin Orange (Andrew Marlin & Emily Frantz) at 5 o'clock.
Please bring a dish to share. B.Y.O.B. Paper products provided. $10.00 suggested donation.
A favorite of Ocracoke audiences, Mandolin Orange, a Chapel Hill, NC duo, delivers a sound uniquely their own, yet satisfyingly familiar. They’ve been described as Americana, Folk-Country and “a little bit grassy”. Call them what you will, people love them! If you’re on Ocracoke on October 2nd, you will not want to miss this special show.
The duo will release a sophomore double LP entitled Haste Make/Hard Hearted Stranger on November 8,
2011 and will tour in support of the album beginning on September 24, at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, NC. We are lucky that they’re stopping here, on Ocracoke. Mark your calendars! Bring a chair and come ready to be entertained!
CDs and other Mandolin Orange merchandise will be available for purchase.
Special thanks to Leslie Lanier of Books to be Red, for providing the venue.
