…used to say they were from Nashville, TN. That was before April 2015 when 5 year members Mallory Graham and Scott Tyler quit their day jobs, sold everything they owned, and gave their thirty day notice on their rental house to trade in for a life permanently on the road. With their sixteen foot camper and their 88 pound dog, Butter, they have been touring nationwide. Don’t let their vagabond tendencies fool you– this Americana-folk duo are a compact team of close harmonies, versatile instrumentation, and deliberate songwriting all presented with a nudge of the elbow and a tongue in the cheek. Haunting, quirky, solemn, and spritely, The Rough & Tumble are for the faint of heart and the strong of will.
Shawn Craver and Joshua Luper present a relaxing and sometimes riveting evening of traditional Appalachian fiddle & guitar music.
“An accomplished singer, songwriter, mandolin, guitar, and fiddle player, Shawn’s music entwines traditional melodies with modern virtuosity” -The Coolfont Foundation. Berkeley Springs, West Virginia.
“…with appearances in most of Wichita’s musical venues such as the Artichoke, Donut Whole, Shamrock Bar, Kelly’s Irish pub and many more. The group features frontman Shawn Craver on fiddle, mandolin, guitar and lead vocals, Caleb Eastman on djembe and Joshua Luper on acoustic guitar. The group will be opening for Father Eddie with their unique brand of IRISH/FOLK/AMERICANA sound.” -KMUW Wichita Public Radio.
“….shades of English, Scottish, and Irish influences and today, they are among the most popular and unique local musicians in Wichita, KS, with an ever-expanding regional following.” – Rock ICT Wichita, Kansas.
