Event Info

By the time 2019 came to an end, Andrew Marlin was grateful for the ascendancy of Mandolin Orange, the duo he has cofounded in North Carolina with fiddler Emily Frantz exactly a decade earlier. With time, they had become new flagbearers of the contemporary folk world, sweetly singing soft songs about the hardest parts of our lives, both as people and as a people. Their rise that grew from small dives, to the Ryman, then to amphitheaters the size of Red Rocks humbled Emily and Andrew, who became parents to Ruby late in 2018. When 2020 dawned, Emily and Andrew hatched a plan to break old habits and escape with their longtime bandmates to a cabin on the edge of Smith Mountain Lake, a sprawling hideaway at the foot of the Appalachians. In our era of recalcitrant typecasts and incessant cultural churn, it is rare to witness anyone press ahead while holding fast to what is best about their past. That is what Watchhouse have done with their self-titled debut.
