The Rough & Tumble
Saturday, Nov. 10, 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON— Road-based folk-Americana duo The Rough & Tumble will be returning to Brandon at Brandon Music on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20.
The Rough & Tumble, comprised of Pennsylvania-born Mallory Graham and California-raised Scott Tyler, have been living with only a PO box and a 16-foot camper to call their own since April 2015, though the band dates back almost seven years. Friends turned bandmates turned married bandmates, they and their 81-pound dog, Puddle, are prolific songwriters living the folk life of 1960s troubadours. Their woven vocal wywharmonies are held together by a the backbone of Tyler’s guitar and filled in with the menagerie of Graham’s instruments such as accordion, toy piano, bells, melodica, and even banjulele. The duo are dense with sound and story, and have occasionally successful jokes, too.
Their new release, “We Made Ourselves a Home When We Didn’t Know,” comes after a long line of releases, but is their first full length record. The duo dips into these housewares-meets-folk-meets-road songs, as well as their back catalogue, during their live show, and generally have a spin on the latest stranger they met just outside the venue.
Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Road, Brandon. Tickets can be purchased at brandon-music.net. Dinner is served upon reservation at 6 p.m.
