Down Home Concert Series: Mandolin Orange

When: Fri., Jan. 10, 8 p.m. 2014

Mandolin Orange's third LP and first for Yep Roc Records, This Side of Jordan, was one of 2013's best, evoking shades of folk, Americana, roots rock and traditional Southern gospel and 'grass in one seamless sitting. The Carrboro songwriting duo appears to be gearing up for a nice 2014, too, if Friday's headlining show in the large Fletcher Opera Theater is any indication. Burgeoning local acts typically graduate from packing rooms like Local 506 to larger ones like Cat's Cradle. Mandolin Orange has done that, sure, but they now make the move into Raleigh's dignified opera theater, which rarely enters such an equation. Then again, this band is no stranger to quietly, humbly taking its own path to its sort of country comfort music. —Corbie Hill
