We’re selecting a winner for this one tomorrow, so act fast if you want to enter. Free tickets or not, this is a show from two exciting artists we think you should know about. Here’s why:
On their just-released sophomore album, The Ash & Clay, The Milk Carton Kids further expand their perfectly balanced contemporary meets traditional folk sound. The duo, which formed in Los Angeles in 2011, has been earning praise from the likes of NPR, and have shared the stage with bands such as The Lumineers, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Punch Brothers.

She’s collaborated with everyone from Noam Pikelny to Chris Thile to Jim Lauderdale to Yo-Yo Ma, and has even caught the attention of Alison Krauss.
Here’s O’Donovan performing live:
