Concert – The Rough & Tumble

The Rough & Tumble is a road-based folk-Americana duo that have been living out of their 16 foot camper for the last three years─ with the stories to prove it. While the duo performs mostly their own material, they also incorporate a few traditional folk songs with a rough-and-tumble take.

Concert - Drumplay

Drumplay’s sound is a wide open one, combining various percussive elements with strings and horns. Exploring Afro-Cuban, Brazilian and Middle Eastern styles in timbre and texture, their approach is purely rhythmic but gives way to a jazz bent and space between notes. “Rhythmprovisation” is how founding member James Onysko explains their modus operandi, that is, “the goal of there being no two performances alike.”
