Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan make up the indie folk duo The Milk Carton Kids. Forming in 2011 they have been at it for only five years and yet they have forged quite a reputation within the folk community. They have a style that is pleasing to both traditionalists and newcomers.
Both Kenneth and Joey had been trying to break into the music industry for a while as solo performers before they decided to work together. Celebrated for their excellent flat-picking style of guitar playing and strong harmonies the two have won fans in the likes of T Bone Burnett, Billy Bragg and Garrison Keillor of A Prairie Home Companion.
After releasing two albums their third, The Ash & Clay, garnered the duo a Grammy nomination for Best Folk Album. Then in 2014 they won Best Duo/Group from the American Music Association.
