No Kidding ­– New Milk Carton Kids Dates

Indie folk guitar duo The Milk Carton Kids may be spotted in your neck of the woods this fall with a series of North American tour dates in support of their new album, “The Ash & Clay.”

The Kids, which consists of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan, have been praised by the New York Times for their “sweetly dazzling variation on close-harmony vocals, part Simon and Garfunkel and part Everly Brothers.”
