Have you seen us? The Milk Carton Kids at the Iron Horse on Saturday, September 22nd at 7PM

"Sweetly dazzling close-harmony vocals, part Simon and Garfunkel, part Everly Brothers"  -New York Times

The Milk Carton Kids, a harmonizing, minimalist duo, uses two guitars and two voices to create a new combination of back-porch Americana and classic folk. Relying on compelling narrative, the seamless interplay between their 1950s acoustics, well-constructed harmony lines which play more like counterpoint melodies, and their natural stage chemistry, TMCK have drawn in and excited sold out crowds across North America since their formation in early 2011.

The serendipitous meeting between the two (Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan) led quickly to a shelving of the solo careers each had been pursuing. While neither had been compelled to such collaboration with any of his peers before, an effortless musical complement, fast personal fondness, and like-minded view toward how to present the collaboration to their fans influenced the duo’s formation and, almost immediately, began drawing praise from varied sources. While press has indeed been kind to the duo, their spirit of independence compelled them to release their first two albums on their own label directly to their fans for free. Yes that’s right, you can download the group’s two albums in their entirety on the band’s website: Better still, you can hear The Milk Carton Kids live at the Iron Horse Music Hall in Northampton on Saturday, September 22nd at 7PM with opener Brendan Hines.
