Watchhouse was formed in 2009, consisting of Emily Franz (vocalist, violinist, and guitarist) and Andrew Marlin (Banjo, Guitarist, Mandolin and vocalist). The duo is married to each other and has produced six albums together. Marlin has long been part of the American music industry, and the albums are his original work in American roots music. The group has extensively toured in the last few years, including destinations in the U.S, U.K, and Europe. They have performed at some of the biggest festivals, including Austin City Limits, Edmonton Folk Music Festival, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and many others. They're also playing at quite a few of them this year.
The duo changed its name in 2021 from Mandolin Orange to Watchhouse. Marlin said that he wanted the band’s name to reflect what it is now and not what he came up with when he was just 21 years old. Their immense success has inspired many folk, Americana, and Bluegrass artists, and their on-stage chemistry is unmatchable. Their fans adore the couple, as they perform passionately and with much authenticity. Catch them playing another remarkable performance at New York’s Irving Plaza on 14th July.
