THE MILK CARTON KIDS
ANNOUNCE SUMMER TOUR DATES
INCLUDING CENTRAL PARK SUMMERSTAGE
& KERRVILLE FOLK FESTIVAL
SUPPORTING DATES WITH KD LANG
& OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW
“A sweetly dazzling variation on close-harmony vocals, part Simon and Garfunkel and part Everly Brothers, with occasional acoustic prestidigitation.” 
The New York Times
“The Milk Carton Kids transport with heartbreaking understatement. Extraordinary musical facility, both vocal and on vintage guitars, meets humor, smarts and style on stage.” 
Huffington Post
 “Gorgeous contemporary folk.”  
– NPR

The Milk Carton Kids (Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan) announce a string of summer tour dates including supporting slots with KD Lang and Old Crow Medicine Show on their respective headline tours, select solo shows and festival appearances including Kerrville Folk Festival and Central Park Summerstage with Old Crow Medicine Show and The Lumineers (full list of dates below).
Since forming little over a year ago The Milk Carton Kids have played over 200 live shows, including a 35-date stint as Joe Purdy’s opening act and backing band, support slots with Over The Rhine and Dar Williams, a successful run of headline dates including sold-out solo shows in New York (Joe’s Pub) and Los Angeles (Largo at the Coronet), and breakout performances at Folk Alliance and SXSW. The band’s one appearance at SXSW received “best of festival” picks from The New York Times, NPR and Time Magazine.
The Milk Carton Kids – a harmonizing minimalist duo who use two guitars and two voices to create a new combination of classic folk and sophisticated back-porch Americana – have released 2 albums – Retrospect (a live album of Kenneth and Joey’s solo songs re-worked as a duo) and the studio album Prologue. The band makes both albums available for free download, no strings attached, direct-to-fans via their website (more than 90,000 downloads and counting!), in addition to all traditional physical and digital retail outlets.
Critical praise has ranged far and wide from supporters such as NPR, Huffington Post, American Songwriter, Daytrotter, No Depression, WXPN, WFUV, KCRW and more. Catch their appearance on NPR’s Word Café, their Daytrotter Session or their 30-min live set for a taste – or at one of the dates listed below for the real thing!
