My first exposure to Mandolin Orange was an early, first-year, performance of Mandolin Orange at The ENO festival river stage. It was Andrew’s deep Southern baritone that lured me to the small shade stage in a stand of trees. A mix of lyrically mature, subtle well-crafted songs, kept me close to the stage for the rest of the set. This duo was different from the average blend of Eno performers that year and certainly chronologically younger than the majority. Now Mandolin Orange is known as “Watchhouse”.

Frantz pulls inspiration for her singing style from diverse traditions: Her first introduction to harmony came from traditional five-piece bluegrass singing. “What I first got introduced to was more traditional bluegrass, and the brother-sister harmonies — like the Stanley Brothers, the Monroe Brothers, things like that, where it’s a pretty straightforward harmony that’s really simple,” she says.
“But after that, I started to enjoy — someone who I guess is really well-known for this would be Emmylou Harris. She has such a unique harmony style,” Frantz goes on to say. “She doesn’t stick necessarily to the tenor part, or the baritone part, or anything. She really jumps around, and can sing those dissonant notes that really make her voice jump out, but it’s still somehow really complementary to whoever’s singing lead.
“I’m thinking maybe specifically of Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris,” Frantz adds. “But she was someone who really broadened my idea of what harmony could be.”

Bob Dylan – Boots of Spanish Leather (Audio)
Oh, I’m sailin’ away, my own true love
I’m sailin’ away in the morning
Is there something I can send you from across the sea
From the place that I’ll be landing?
No, there’s nothin’ you can send me, my own true love
There’s nothin’ I’m wishin’ to be ownin’
Just carry yourself back to me unspoiled
From across that lonesome ocean
Oh, but I just thought you might want something fine
Made of silver or of golden
Either from the mountains of Madrid
Or from the coast of Barcelona
But if I had the stars of the darkest night
And the diamonds from the deepest ocean
I’d forsake them all for your sweet kiss
For that’s all I’m wishin’ to be ownin’
But I might be gone a long old time
And it’s only that I’m askin’
Is there something I can send you to remember me by?
To make your time more easy-passin’
Oh, how can, how can you ask me again?
It only brings me sorrow
The same thing I would want today
I would want again tomorrow
Oh, I got a letter on a lonesome day
It was from her ship a-sailin’
Saying I don’t know when I’ll be comin’ back again
It depends on how I’m a-feelin’
If you, my love, must think that-a-way
I’m sure your mind is roamin’
I’m sure your thoughts are not with me
But with the country to where you’re goin’
So take heed, take heed of the western winds
Take heed of the stormy weather
And yes, there’s something you can send back to me
Spanish boots of Spanish leather
