ROUGH AND TUMBLE
The Rough & Tumble are two scarecrows in a cornfield, two pairs of hands stealing the same piece of candy, a dust devil that traveled seven states to get to you only to make you cry. They are the only surviving memory of the first bike accident in the history of bikes and the skinned knees and the broken hearts. They love eating fish but always feel bad about it when they put them in the pan, especially when the eyes are still intact. They wake up every morning and work on that crossword puzzle written in a forgotten language that only gets harder the more you forget. The Rough & Tumble are here to lock eyes with you in a crowded room, smile and wink at you.
We are thrilled to bring Pierce back to FolkHouse. His performance last year was fantastic! So if you missed that show, here's your chance to experience one of the finest songwriters around.
"Pierce Pettis doesnít write mere songs, he writes literature...End to end the songwriting is brilliant...Pierce Pettis albums are events in my listening. His writing just gets better all the time and his singing is marvelous, wry and warm..." -Sing Out!
Last year's Honey Dewdrop's FolkHouse appearance was a huge success and we're happy to bring them back!
Using a handful of acoustic instruments and two voices, Laura and Kagey strive for clarity over effects and ornamentation. Itís what you have left when you strip everything back down to zero. It rocks, it reels, and then it consoles you when you come back down.
