When: Sat., June 11 2016
The Rough & Tumble used to say they were from Nashville, TN. That was before April 2015 when 5 year members Mallory Graham and Scott Tyler quit their day jobs, sold everything they owned, and gave their thirty day notice on their rental house to trade in for a life permanently on the road. With their sixteen foot camper and their 88 pound dog, Butter, they have been touring nationwide. Don't let their vagabond tendencies fool you-- this americana-folk duo are a compact team of close harmonies, versatile instrumentation, and deliberate songwriting all presented with a nudge of the elbow and a tongue in the cheek. Haunting, quirky, solemn, and spritely, The Rough & Tumble are for the faint of heart and the strong of will. And on Saturday, June 11th the duo will be making an appearance at Trinity House in Livonia. The duo have 3 EP’s and one double album under their belts, a year long project aptly named The Rough & Tumble’s Holiday Awareness Campaign, in which the couple wrote, recorded, and released 24 songs in correlation with 24 underappreciated, uncelebrated, or misunderstood holidays. Then, The Rough & Tumble found themselves presented with a new challenge.
