The Milk Carton Kids Nominated For A Grammy For Best Folk Album

The Milk Carton Kids have been nominated for a Grammy for the Best Folk Album for their debut, The Ash & Clay, which was released earlier this year.

The folk duo are also featured in a new Showtime special entitled Another Day, Another Time. The film documents the benefit concert held last September in New York City celebrating the music of the new Coen Brothers’ film, Inside Llewyn Davis, which is set in the 1960s Greenwich Village folk music scene. The concert was produced by the Coens and T Bone Burnett, the film’s soundtrack producer. Along with The Milk Carton Kids, the film features performances from the Avett Brothers, Joan Baez, Marcus Mumford, Punch Brothers, Patti Smith, Jack White and more.

Below is a preview of a scene of The Milk Carton Kids rehearsing their song Snake Eyes for rapt onlookers including Punch Brothers, Marcus Mumford, T Bone Burnett and the Coens.

Another Day, Another Time aired on Friday 13 December on Showtime.

The Milk Carton Kids have announced a series of North American tour dates for the Spring of 2014. They will be performing in support of their critically acclaimed and Grammy nominated Anti- Records release, The Ash & Clay.
