Watchhouse (formerly Mandolin Orange)+Alexa Rose
Watchhouse, formerly Mandolin Orange, is an Americana-folk duo formed in 2009 in Chapel Hill, N.C. Featuring Andrew Marlin (vocals, mandolin, guitar, banjo) and Emily Frantz (vocals, violin, guitar), the duo weaves their Appalachian-steeped folk into their earnest songwriting. Watchhouse’s songs capture audiences through the interplay between storytelling and harmony singing.
Over the past decade, they have released six albums under the name Mandolin Orange, and recently produced their first album as Watchhouse. The latest recording reflects their new direction and intentions as a band and brings the audience along on their journey.
Watchhouse has performed across the United States and Europe, including appearances at Austin City Limits, South by Southwest, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and MerleFest.
