Tough Old Bird
The Grasping At Straws
Tough Old Bird (Fillmore, NY)
"Full and rich...the homespun folk of Tough Old Bird has a dark quality to it, while ultimately serving as a testament to the Corrigan brothers’ synthesis of their surroundings. With these songs, they’ve captured the essence of familiar backroads meandering." — Buffablog
Formed in the small community of Fillmore, New York by songwriting brothers Matthew and Nathan Corrigan, Tough Old Bird plays modern folk music that reflects the landscape it comes from, a place where the last train just pulled out and the carnival is always on its way to the next town....
The Grasping At Straws (Milwaukee, WI)
Out of “drinkers’ paradise” Milwaukee, WI, Grasping at Straws blend the sounds of old Americana, country, and blues with a more modern, dissonant rock energy. With a canon of eclectic and catchy songs, the Straws use the traditional tools of multiple harmonies, banjo, guitar, fiddle and upright bass to create a well-rounded offering.
