About Milk Carton Kids
After forming in 2011, the duo of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan have quickly built a devoted following with the simple purity of their music. They have toured with a host of established acts (Old Crow Medicine Show, Sarah Jarosz, Punch Brothers, and more), and have appeared on NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series, Daytrotter, A Prairie Home Companion, Austin City Limits and other shows. They are adept at charming audiences with their deadpan on-stage humor.
While their most obvious musical reference is the classic folk revival sound of twin acoustic guitars and matching harmonies, the band both expands and contradicts that rich legacy with highly inventive guitar lines and their intricately interwoven vocals.
