Event Details

Long-time friends and Nashville collaborators Emily Mann and Wila Frank, known together as Paper Wings, dream up warm, pastoral folk songs suited to wandering through a forest or field, quiet contemplation, and long winding journeys.

Furnished with delicate banjo and spellbinding harmonies so close you often can’t tell their voices apart, they deliver dynamic performances emboldened by the strength of their sincere songwriting.

The duo have an uncommon ability to tastefully reference nostalgic sounds of American folk music while maintaining their own compelling style of artful and unpretentious lyricism.

The strength and solitude one finds in the wilderness is a theme throughout their writing, and they lovingly transport listeners to open landscapes in which to find comfort and ask the questions which we all have in common.

Both with roots in rural parts of the West Coast, Mann & Frank eventually found their way to Nashville where they recorded their debut album Paper Wings in 2017 and sophomore album Clementine which came out in 2019. In 2020 the duo were on the road opening for Avi Kaplan’s ‘I’ll Get By’ tour. It was soon after this that they shared Marigold, the first pre-released single from the upcoming album which is a delicate and hope-filled ode to new beginnings and second chances. This is the first peek into their upcoming album which explores themes of grounding and rediscovering a sense of innocence.
