Grammy-nominated American indie folk duo The Milk Carton Kids comes to QPAC with their critically acclaimed new record The Only Ones.
Defying the conventions of melody and harmony, the band’s unique sound is the perfect blend of nostalgia and innovation, breathing new life into the traditional folk genre with whimsical lyrics and unique melodies.
Founded in 2011 by Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale, The Milk Carton Kids swiftly emerged as a major force in the American folk tradition, blending ethereal harmonies and intricate musicianship with a powerful brand of contemporary songcraft. The Only Ones sees the duo return to their roots, with a sound steeped in the great duos of days gone by, like The Everly Brothers and Simon and Garfunkel.
The Milk Carton Kids have previously toured with acts like KD Lang, The Lumineers and Punch Brothers, with appearances on televisiion shows including Jimmy Kimmell Live! and Conan O’Brien. At their intimate live shows, the duo’s generous sense of humour allows audiences to really connect with soul-stirring songs like “Michigan” and “Maybe It’s Time”, making for a concert experience fans won’t soon forget.
