Formed in the small community of Fillmore, New York by songwriting brothers Matthew and Nathan Corrigan, Tough Old Bird plays a potent blend of authentic folk and blues that reflects the rural 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 core of Tough Old Bird’s sound comes from Matthew Corrigan’s intricate acoustic guitar work, and from the voice and nimble harmonica playing of Nathan Corrigan, who holds a degree in literature and brings a poetic sensibility to the duo’s lyrics. Accents of accordion and waves of electric guitar give Tough Old Bird a sound that is at once modern and ancient. The band released its second full-length album, “Gambling Days,” on January 22, 2016. The new album brings a more focused approach to songwriting and a newly expanded lineup featuring drums and upright bass.
Zack and Sam DuPont are a Burlington, VT based, sibling indie-folk-americana duo. Since the start of the band in March of 2013, the brothers have toured heavily throughout the Northeast, Mid Atlantic, South and Mid West in a fully independent pursuit to get their songs to as many ears as possible. Their travels have opened doors to festival appearances at SXSW & Grand Point North in addition to performances in support of some of their musical heroes including Bahamas, Blake Mills, Sturgill Simpson Ben Sollee, Chris Eldridge & Julian Lage and Jerry Douglas to name a few. What the DuPont Brothers are most excited about is the next phase. This past year, they have been working on a new album with VT producer, Michael Chorney along with an all-star cast of local musicians. Their sophomore full length and first ever vinyl release, A Riddle For You will hit stores in June.
