The Rough & Tumble will perform at Music on Malphrus, 110 Malphrus Road, in Bluffton, SC, Saturday, January 12, at 7:00 pm. General Admission is $20. Doors open at 6:00 pm.
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’ 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 1960’s troubadours. Their woven vocal harmonies are held together by 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 is dense with sound and story, and has occasionally successful jokes, too.
Their new release, We Made Ourselves a Home When We Didn’t Know (February 9, 2018) 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. www.theroughandtumble.com
