Mallory Graham and Scott Tyler formed The Rough & Tumble in 2011, after nearly five years of sidestepping the awkward musical tension between them. Then, four years, three EPs, and one year-long, 24-song challenge known as The Rough & Tumble’s Holiday Awareness Campaign later, the duo decided it was high time to stop sidestepping the tension of the cartoon hearts in their eyes, too. In 2015, the couple sold everything they couldn’t store in boxes small enough to fit in Mallory’s sister’s spare closet, quit their day jobs, admitted they were in love, and bought a 16-foot camper to venture on the open road, playing shows nationwide.
They’ve been out there ever since, recording two additional EPs (2016’s Pieces and Pieces and this 2017’s Cardboard and Christmas Lights), squeezing in a second dog, and their first full-length album, 2018’s We Made Ourselves a Home When We Didn’t Know. With their debut, the folk-Americana duo retraces their mileage back to their footsteps and explores the struggle between going home and being home already when there’s no other home and everywhere is home. Recorded in East Nashville with Dave Coleman, The Rough & Tumble invited a couple of musician friends from their sad-singer-songwriter and rock-n-roll-rebel days to accompany them on a portrait of what has happened so far, and what they hope is still to come.
Don’t miss them as they roll through Hill City again on Thursday, Aug. 22, for a 7:30 p.m. free show in the Miner Brewing Company Taproom.

Mark your calendars as the Miner Brewing Music Series Presents: Burlap Wolf King on Saturday, Oct. 12, in the Miner Brewing Co. Taproom in Hill City.
Burlap Wolf King is the vessel of song of South Dakota-based singer/songwriter Thomas Hentges.
Throughout more than 10 active years, BWK has seen a rotating cast of characters. 2009’s full length LP “The Middle” was followed up by 2013’s live and acoustic-leaning “BWK” EP. Now back with a decidedly solidified six-piece lineup, Hentges and company are stronger than ever. BWK’s 2017 full-length offering, “Bitter Honey,” is highlighted by a distinct leap forward in songwriting and style, all the while showcasing this new outfit’s prowess and versatility both live and in the studio.
This all-ages, after-hours show starts at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are just $10 when purchased in advance.
