Sunday, March 29
2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

The Rough and 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 and Scott Tyler and their menagerie of classic foll and homemade instruments, 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 their weird little towns they pass along the way. The Rouh and Tumble released their latest studio album, Howling Back, at the Wounded Dog on September 6, 2019.
