The Rough and Tumble, an Americana-folk duo, will bring their harmonies and versatile instrumentation to the Dogwood Black Box on Thursday, September 2 at 7:30 p.m.
The Rough and Tumble used to say they were from Nashville, Tennessee. That was before April 2015 when members Mallory Graham and Scott Tyler sold everything, paid their last month's rent, bought a camper, and took to the road full time.
The duo, along with their large dogs, have been touring the country for more than four years. The folk-Americana, close-harmony pair have been known to vary their instruments from classic acoustic guitar and harmonica to melodicas and homemade shakers made from wine bottles, all set to their original songwriting that has been described as "quirky, haunting, and deliberate."
Early in 2021, The Rough and Tumble dug into the severed branch of their family tree, bringing their newest work, We’re Only Family If You Say So, a full length record about what it takes to be family. This new record follows on the 2019 release Howling Back at the Wounded Dog, a 10-song album wherein response was audible, with audiences literally howling back at performances coast-to-coast. The opening track “The Hardest Part” won the Independent Music Award’s Best Americana Song of 2019.
