World Cafe Playlist for 01/30/2020

The Milk Carton Kids join host Stephen Kallao

After recording their last album with a backing band, The Milk Carton Kids decided to return to their duo roots. On the new record, The Only Ones, you’ll hear just the voices and acoustic guitars of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan. They stop by the World Cafe today to perform some of the new music around a single microphone. And we’ll hear the story of how they came to host the Americana Music Awards, and what they think the label “Americana” really means.
