"Paper Wings" FAI Debut

Americana Folk duo, "Paper Wings", will be making their Folk Alliance debut in 2018 and are currently seeking showcases. 


Phone: 541.602.4221


Folk Category: Traditional Americana

Emily Mann and Wilhelmina Frankzerda of "Paper Wings" have a refreshingly intimate sound and capture their listeners with their deep traditional old-time Appalachian and Indie influences. Both originally from the west coast, they are now based out of Berkeley, CA and Nashville, TN. Their stunning vocal harmonies soar over a rotating cast of clawhammer banjo, guitar, and fiddles. These two blossoming songwriters have a unique way of weaving traditional music in to their thoughtfully crafted songs leaving you feeling nostalgic and exhilarated. Their self-titled debut album was released in February 2017. Paper Wings is a genuine intertwining of two souls you won't soon forget.

"What a gorgeous, big-hearted and masterfully played bunch of songs and tunes from two of the best musicians I know." – Kristin Andreassen of Uncle Earl, Sometymes Why

"Simply crafted and executed, these songs bring an innovative and timeless sound to their music. Paper Wings will be a new addition to fans of old-time and traditional stylings" -Bluegrass Unlimited

More about Wilhelmina and Emily:

Originally from Oregon, Wilhelmina Frankzerda is an extraordinary young talent widely recognized for her impressive fiddle playing and profound songwriting. At just 19, she has won the National Twin Fiddle Championship, performed on the Grand Ol’ Opry, and been twice selected to participate in the Savannah Music Seminar. She released her first album of all original songs featuring chamber-grass trio, the Bee Eaters in 2015.

Emily Mann is a California native with her heart in the old Appalachian mountains. She studied with old-time legends such as Paul Brown, Alice Gerrard, Bruce Molsky, and John Herrmann and has established herself as one of the most gifted and capable up and coming musicians in the traditional music scene. She has performed with Darol Anger, Aoife O'Donovan, Sean Watkins, Laurie Lewis, Abigail Washburn, and more.
