Mandolin Orange 

When: Sat., Aug. 28, 6-8 p.m. 2010
Price: Donation

The fragile country-folk of Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz serves as an elegy to the end of the Rivermill's summer music series. The duo balances guitar, fiddle and mandolin to evoke peeling white-picket fences, smooth apple butter and crinkling brown leaves. With a voice like that of a more delicate Damien Jurado, Marlin goes to the well of traditional folk themes and emotes his own pensive reflections on love, doom and the pastoral life. Like lovers grasping hands on a windy fall day, Frantz's vocal harmonies warm the cool music. The two musicians value the quiet spaces in songs as much as the noise, creating a filigree of guitar strong enough to support the sweeping stroke of a bow.—Andrew Ritchey
