Acoustic Asheville: The Rough & Tumble

There was a time when The Rough & Tumble were regulars on the local scene. They’ve since hit the road and haven’t stopped moving since then. With a bevy of instruments that belies the skill of just two people, they bring new and exciting elements to the Americana genre. There aren’t many folk bands with a xylophone or a melodica in their repertoire.

With a brand-new record set for release in January and more local appearances on the horizon to come, the duo stopped by The Grey Eagle one recent afternoon to perform a quartet of songs exclusively for Xpress and Acoustic Asheville.

“It’s Alright”


“Love Come Trouble Me”

“July Shivers”
