The Milk Carton Kids bring acoustic Americana to Newcastle – Wednesday 29th January 2020

 

California indie folk duo The Milk Carton Kids bring their exquisite live show to the Tyne Theatre & Opera House stage on Wednesday 29th January 2020.

The Milk Carton Kids return to the UK and Europe for the first time since the 2018 release of their Grammy-nominated album‘All the Things That I Did and All the Things That I Didn’t Do’.

The new project marks the first time that acoustic duo Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale have brought a band into the studio with them. Two-part harmonies ride acoustic guitars, high above the haunting landscape created by the presence of the band, as if Americana went searching for a lost America.

Fresh from a string of US shows, including an opening slot for Mumford & Sons, on this short tour consisting of just six UK dates, songs new and old will be played by the duo without accompaniment.

Pattengale says. “I’m the lucky recipient of a life in which for hundreds of times, day after day, I get to spend an hour that is like speaking a language only two people know and doing it in a space with others who want to hear it.”

Support comes from one of American music’s most distinct voices, Grammy and Oscar-winning singer-songwriter Ryan Bingham.

Theatre Director Joanne Johnson says: “I’m thrilled to add another music event to the theatre’s programme, as the acoustics of the theatre are truly perfect for concerts. The Milk Carton Kids’ sound will be spine-tingling under our beautiful domed ceiling.”

Tickets are priced: £28 / £25.50 / £20.50

General sale tickets are available from 10:00am on Friday 30thAugust at www.tynetheatreandoperahouse.uk
