    The Rough and Tumble, an Americana-folk duo, will bring their harmonies and versatile instrumentation to the Dogwood Black Box on Thursday, July 13 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 97 pound dog, Butter, 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.”

    With three EP’s under their belt, a double album called The Rough & Tumble’s Holiday Awareness Campaign, which highlights the unappreciated holidays in an ambitious songwriting feat, and a short film soundtrack called Pieces and Pieces that was released in 2016, The Rough and Tumble have kept busy on and off the road.

    You can find The Rough and Tumble at www.theroughandtumble.com, with their music is also available on iTunes and Spotify.
