The Indie-Americana duo, Mandolin Orange, Visits Hunter At Sunrise for an Acoustic Session this Sunday

mandolin orange     
    Yep Roc recording artists, Mandolin Orange, will be our guests this Sunday for an acoustic session.  In town recently for a house concert, we had the opportunity to sit down with Emily Frantz and Andrew Marlin to talk to them about their latest album, This Side of Jordan. Says Ashleigh Phillips of Independent Weekly, "Mandolin Orange carries an understanding of tradition and shape it into a thing of beauty. They craft simple songs that go beyond chord progressions and vocal harmonies, leading somehow toward something pure."
     Hope you can join us for this very special acoustic session this Sunday morning. For more about Mandolin Orange, click HERE.

Hunter At Sunrise Welcomes Starr Celeste to the Show this Sunday

Starr Celeste
There were actually two singer/songwriter contests to determine local artists who would play at the Aiken & Friends Fest the first weekend in October.  The first was at Victorian Tea Station in Phoebus, and the winners of that contest, Gratiot Lake Road, were just on our show a couple of weeks ago. And now this weekend comes the second winner, Starr Celeste, who came out on top of a contest held at Cozzi's Comedy Club in N.News recently. Starr Celeste is an emerging indie/acoustic artist here in the area who has been frequenting open mikes on the Pensinsula.  Hope you will join us as we welcome Starr Celeste to Hunter At Sunrise this Sunday morning for the first time.  For more about Starr Celeste on Facebook, click HERE.
