19 Jan The Milk Carton Kids to make Their Mariposa Debut
This contemporary folk duo from Los Angeles sports a fresh sound with beautifully harmonized vocals, exquisitely entwined acoustic guitar playing, and rootsy yet eloquent song writing.
National Public Radio says The Milk Carton Kids are like “Gillian Welch & David Rawlings meets Simon & Garfunkel with a splash of The Everly Brothers”.
You would be hard-pressed to find a standard artist bio for these guys, anywhere online. They would rather you form your own opinion by listening for yourself to their expressive, quirky, warm and delightful performances.
So confident are they in winning you over, they’re even offering two albums, Retrospect and Prologue, for free on their website. They know that, once you’ve heard them, you’ll want more. Already, there have been hundreds of thousands of downloads.
After forming in 2011, The Milk Carton Kids spent most of the next year on the road with other folk acts, including Old Crow Medicine Show and the Lumineers.
They have performed on late-night’s Conan, the legendary Austin City Limits television show, on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion, appeared on numerous other television and radio broadcasts, and they have a full concert DVD released by National Public Radio on top of four albums to their credit.
