Traditionalist folk duo, The Milk Carton Kids, will perform their first-ever New Zealand show at here at The Tuning Fork this August! They bring with them their latest record The Only Ones released last year via their own label, Milk Carton Records. Unlike the full band setting of All the Things That I Did And All the Things That I Didn't Do (2018) Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan return to their roots on The Only Ones with a collection of stripped back acoustic songs.
"...with The Only Ones the duo’s close harmony and acoustic guitar approach creates a powerfully intimate experience and one that deserves to be shared."
- Folk Radio UK
Founded in 2011, The Milk Carton Kids swiftly emerged as a major force in the American folk tradition, blending ethereal harmonies and intricate musicianship with a uniquely powerful brand of contemporary songcraft.
2013’s ANTI-debut The Ash & Clay proved their national breakthrough, earning The Milk Carton Kids their first Grammy Award nomination for Best Folk Album. A second Grammy nomination for Best American Roots Performance followed in 2015 for the track “The City of Our Lady” from band’s acclaimed third studio album, Monterey, and their most recent album, 2018’s All The Things That I Did And All The Things That I Didn’t Do, was nominated for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.
