Lean in to Mandolin Orange’s recent album, Blindfaller, and it’s bound to happen. You’ll suddenly pick up on the power and devastation lurking in its quietude, the doom hiding beneath its unvarnished beauty. You’ll hear the way it magnifies the intimacy at the heart of the North Carolina duo’s music, as if they created their own musical language as they recorded it.
Building on the acclaim of Mandolin Orange’s 2013 breakthrough debut on Yep Roc Records This Side of Jordan and its follow-up, 2015’s Such Jubilee, their new album Blindfaller is already following suit. Upon its release, the album charted on Billboard’s Bluegrass (#3) and Folk/Americana (#16), made Rolling Stone’s “40 Best Country Albums of 2016” and was featured on NPR’s “Heavy Rotation,” among others.
Lime Kiln Arts, Inc. is a non-profit (501c3), operating at Lime Kiln Theater in Lexington. It opened in 1984 and is rooted in and inspired by the magic of a natural, outdoor theater. After a brief hiatus that started in 2012, Lime Kiln Theater is thrilled to present its fifth straight summer season of live music and theater featuring local, regional and national acts.
