With several albums under their belts, North Carolina musicians Emily Frantz and Andrew Marlin continue to create even more wonderful songs while out on the road. Their tunes are a combination of bluegrass, country, and folk. As you can guess from the name of the group, their unique sound features the mandolin.
Kim Ruehl, NPR Music
There is no shortage of folk and country songs about booze. But what makes the Mandolin Orange tune “Waltz About Whiskey” so enchanting is its effortlessness. The words seem to fall right into one another, like cheery drunks into so many bar stools.
