Young Heirlooms (Cincinnati)
Cincinnati Folk duo Young Heirlooms’ self-titled debut album is full of guitar, mandolin and banjo tunes that will make you swish your skirt and dance, just like they do every time they hop up on the stage. Currently, there’s an awesome surge of mixed-gender bands on the radio. Kelly Fine’s sweet voice and Christopher Robinson’s playing and harmonies belong in that mix. If you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years, you need to see them live. They’ll bring their A-game when they play MidPoint for the millionth time.
You’ll Dig It If You Dig: Civil Wars (with less animosity), that Lumineers/Of Monsters and Men scene, Ryan Adams covers. (Deirdre Kaye)
