Live! Folklife Concerts: The Rough & Tumble

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Crandall Public Library
Christine L. McDonald Community Room
Formerly from Nashville, The Rough & Tumble now find themselves living full time on the road–in a 16 ft camper with their two dogs, Puddle and Magpie. If you ask Mallory Graham or Scott Tyler how their lives ended up this way they’ll likely respond, “With careful planning, spreadsheets and shoddy cell phone service.” On their new album, We Made Ourselves a Home When We Didn’t Know (February 2018), this quirky Americana duo retraces their mileage back through their footsteps and explores the struggle between going home and being home already when there's no other home and everywhere is home. The R&T know how the tread wears down on the tires when you play 140 shows a year cross-country. They’re willing to stop, should the music run out of them and the road end, but until then, they are likely cross-referencing a spreadsheet to play your town. “The duo’s sound is clean and straightfordward, placing the vocals of Graham and/or Tyler front and center… the pair’s strong vocal blend is supported by a crystalline arrangement” – Bill Kopp, Musoscribe.

Live! Folklife Concerts: Daly & Thoma with Stevig & Harrist

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Crandall Public Library
Christine L. McDonald Community Room
Ross Daly and Kelly Thoma are masters of the Mediterranean lyra, a bowed fiddle that has more than a dozen sympathetic strings. Ross Daly has spent his life exploring the possibilities and connections in modal music, recording and performing all over the globe as well as hosting the annual Labyrinth Musical Workshop in his home village of Houdetsi on the island of Crete in Greece. In 2015 Daly and Thoma appeared at New York’s Carnegie Hall, and now on their fourth annual US tour, are celebrating the release of their new double record “Lunar” climbing to the top of the Transglobal World Music Chart. At this evening’s performance they will be a part of a quartet, joined by Tev Stevig and Michael K. Harrist of Çesni Trio.

“This music we hear on ‘Lunar’ is a contemporary expression of the beauty of modality from the various global traditions. These traditions are completely transformed into a new and visionary musical universe. Daly and Thoma know how to take you effortlessly into their grip. Only at the end of this wonderful world trip will you return to reality” – Jan Willem Broek.
