Mandolin Orange to perform live on The Bull City Cosmic Hoedown -- Tues April 20th 7pm

 Tune in to The Bull City Cosmic Hoedown during the 7:00pm hour on Tues April 20 to hear a live performance and interview with Chapel Hill's Mandolin Orange.  This exciting young folk/bluegrass duo has been burning up the club circuit and outdoor festivals with their fiddle and mandolin playing and their tight vocal harmonies.  Andrew Marlin and Emily Franz have been drawing large crowds wherever they play and have gotten a lot of attention for their wonderful duet singing and original songs, as well as covers of classic country and bluegrass tunes.     Last year they released an EP and are now about to release their first full-length album, "Quiet Little Room", with an album release party at Local 506 on May 1st.
