Students: Welcome to Ann Arbor and to The Ark, a world-class club with music for all ages and tastes! Tonight's show is FREE with student ID. Mandolin Orange, writes Ashleigh Phillips of Independent Weekly, crafts "simple songs that go beyond chord progressions and vocal harmonies, leading somehow toward something pure. Using acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin and a hand-me-down fiddle, Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz allure with a heartworn sensibility." This North Carolina duo has shared stages with Rosanne Cash, Chatham County Line, the Steep Canyon Rangers and Abigail Washburn," and last spring they made a splash at The Ark as opener for Old Crow Medicine Show vocalist Willie Watson. Their original songs are drenched in a mastery of classic country, rock, and blues, but they are both personal and contemporary.
