The Rough & Tumble + Taylor James Donskey $10
Friday, May 13, 2022 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
The Rough & Tumble are as easy to detect as a stray dog on your doorstep– and as difficult to send home. The dumpster-folk, thriftstore-Americana duo, consisting of Mallory Graham & Scott Tyler and their menagerie of classic folk and homemade instruments, have been hobbling around the country in their 16ft camper with their two dogs since 2015, taking their songs to the far corners of the US and to the weird little towns they pass along the way. Love Is Gross…but it looks good on you, the newest collection of songs by The Rough & Tumble is a “fun project of kinda, sorta love songs” released February 11th, just in time for Valentine’s Day. This comes on the heels of We’re Only Family If You Say So, the 2021 album about what it means to be family, and what it means to lose it. With singles debuting on American Songwriter, The Bluegrass Situation and Grateful Web referring to the album as “a must listen,” it has been embraced by fans for its stark honesty, unique storytelling and well-crafted melodies, especially at a time when families are deeply divided. With any luck, The Rough & Tumble will be traveling to a city near you in 2022.
Taylor James Donskeyy plays alternative country, sharing everyday tales from everyday people. Uncluttered melodies over a lived in sound support the stories, the hopes and the relationships these people have with one another. These songs are the lasting impressions left by simple, impactful living. Warm and natural, Taylor builds on the solid foundation that was given new life by Gillian Welch; perpetuated by Jeff Tweedy and set on its head by Blake Mills.
