Mallory Graham and her musical and life partner, Scott Tyler, comprise The Rough & Tumble. They started making music and playing shows together in 2007 and refer to their sound as “dumpstore folk/thrift store Americana.” In 2015, the duo hit the road with their dogs in a 16-foot camper and have been touring around the country off and on ever since. The latest releases are last year’s “Love is Gross (but it looks good on you)” and 2021’s “We’re Only Family If You Say So.”

Here’s a chance to see the Maine debut by Venezualachian (Venezuelan/Appalachian) duo Larry & Joe. The band is North Carolina’s Joe Troop, who founded and was bandleader of Grammy-nominated Latingrass ensemble Che Apalache, and Larry Bellorín from Monagas, Venezeuela, an asylum-seeking migrant who is known for his expertise in Llanero, a subgenre of traditional Venezuelan-Colombian music and dance. Bellorín is leaving his construction job behind with the hopes of making music his full-time career. Cheer him and Troop on in person, and enjoy the sounds of the harp, banjo, cuatro (type of guitar), fiddle, upright bass, guitar and maracas.
