Description: On Sale Now! Coming to The Stiefel on Jan 8. Mandolin Orange’s music radiates a mysterious warmth —their songs feel like whispered secrets, one hand cupped to your ear. The North Carolina duo have built a steady and growing fanbase with this kind of intimacy, and on Tides of a Teardrop, due out February 1, it is more potent than ever. Tickets start at $28 and are available at our box office in person or by phone (785) 827-1998 or online via Ticketmaster. Submitted by: Valerie Johnson Stiefel Theatre
