Carolina Video: Mipso, Mandolin Orange and Shovels & Rope


Three Carolina bands (one South, two North) will be up north of the Mason Dixon very soon and each of them recently released new videos worth a watch.

Mipso will play the first ever grass clippings garden session on Wednesday, July 23rd at 8:30 PM, which you can stream live from anywhere in the world on Concert Window. Our friends at The Bluegrass Situation recently shot this video of the band singing “A Couple Acres Greener,” the great opening track of the band’s debut album. Mipso also performs at Rockwood on Friday, June 25th.
