The Milk Carton Kids Announce 2014 Tour Dates

Following a triumphant performance on Austin City Limits and a third appearance on A Prairie Home Companion, Los Angeles duo The Milk Carton Kids have announced a series of North American tour dates for the Spring of 2014 playing in support of their acclaimed Anti- Records release, The Ash & Clay.

The Milk Carton Kids were featured in two PBS television events last week. First, the PBS documentary Nashville 2.0: The Rise of Americana aired on November 22 nationwide and highlighted the duo’s shaping of the new Americana movement. The second, ACL Presents: Americana Music Festival 2013, featured the band’s performance at the Ryman Auditorium in September and aired in the ACL time slot on PBS throughout the week.

In the last three years, the Los Angeles based flat-picking harmony duo has emerged as a powerful voice defining the continuing folk tradition. A refreshing alternative to the foot-stomping grandeur of the so-called “folk revival,” an understated virtuosity defines The Milk Carton Kids to the delight of traditionalists and genre newcomers alike.
