Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale, known as The Milk Carton Kids, are getting a lot of well-deserved buzz. When the folk duo released its second album Prologue for free online last year, more than 60,000 fans downloaded the tracks. Acoustic, soothing, rich in ballads — the signature Milk Carton Kids form of fusing two voices into one sound is mesmerizing.

A World Cafe: Next artist just last September, the duo returns for a full-length interview and performance. Full of perfectly blended harmonies and summery synergy, Prologue's songs provide the focus of today's session.
