The Rough & Tumble w/ Piper & Carson
The Blue Door, 2805 N McKinley Ave, Oklahoma City
Two folk/Americana duos, The Rough & Tumble and Piper & Carson team up for a great night of music in Oklahoma City, OK at The Blue Door on January 31, 2020. The show starts at 8PM. Tickets are available at http://www.bluedoorokc.com/
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 homemade instruments and noise makers, have been hobbling around the country in their 16ft camper with their dogs since 2015, taking their songs to the far corners of the US and to the weird little towns they pass along the way. Written during a time of trying despite the odds and a “year of honesty,” The Rough & Tumble released their latest album Howling Back at the Wounded Dog in September 2019. Join the pack and see the show that has been described as "restorative Americana, highly entertaining, with jokes and stories worthy of an HBO special."
From festival stages to intimate house concerts, Piper & Carson remind us of why we go to see live music. Their songwriting is free and fiercely personal; as if it’s been running in the woods, washing in cold water, and howling with wolves.
The couple's undeniable chemistry and onstage presence draws the audience into the conversation. Piper’s immersive storytelling provides context and familiarity bringing their original music to life. After first meeting on Carson’s father’s organic vegetable farm, they’ve spent the last four years touring Canada coast-to-coast, showcasing at international folk conferences, touring overseas in the Netherlands and to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In December 2017 they released the album ‘Piper & Carson’ together. Their work is deeply rooted in intention and both strive to use their platform to forward social change and promote mental health awareness.
This duo will make you believe that folk music can change the world.
