Named by Rolling Stone as one of the “11 Best Things We Saw” at Merlefest, Chapel Hill, North Carolina-based Mandolin Orange announce the first leg of their fall tour, which includes stops in the Midwest and East Coast. After notable summer festival appearances at Bonnaroo, Red Wing Roots, Forecastle, Newport Folk Festival and Pickathon, the duo’s 19-city fall tour will begin September 17 in Bristol, TN. A full list of dates is below.

Created by Matt Carter and Ricardo Bouyett, the duo’s official video for “Take This Heart of Gold” premiered with Newport Folk Festival.

With “mesmerizing” (Wild Honey Pie) and “striking originals” (Rolling Stone), the duo’s Blindfaller debuted at #3 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Album Chart and #7 on the Heatseekers chart. Songs from Blindfaller have garnered over 12 million album track streams, with 6.5 million streams of the first single, “Wildfire,” and 3 million for the second single, “Hey Stranger.”

Founded in 2009, the duo’s 2013 release This Side of Jordan garnered critical acclaim with NPR calling the album “effortless and beautiful.” Their 2015 follow-up, Such Jubilee, garnered further press praise with Rolling Stone including the album in “30 Great Country Albums of 2015 You Probably Didn’t Hear” and NPR’s Folk Alley’s “Best of 2015 Listener’s Poll.” The record was #1 on Magnet’s “Top 10 Indie Roots Albums of 2015” and Paste called it “an album full of blissful moments.”
