The collaboration between Scottish duo Doghouse Roses and U.S. (Philadelphia) native Joseph Parsons began in the dark corner of a smokey bar in Berlin in 2015. A shared spirit of eclecticism and a roots tradition of contemporary storytelling is strikingly evident in both artists as are modern elements of rock, blues, soul and country.
Parsons has released 18 records on Germany’s Blue Rose label since signing to them in 1997. An outlier on the label, he brings an edgy modern world-perspective to his personal songs through energy and emotional honesty.
Doghouse Roses are a fiercely independent duo combining harmony vocals, guitars and clawhammer banjo. They established their reputation through the UK and Central Europe, touring on their own and as members of U.S. based alt-country collective The Willard Grant Conspiracy.
Touring together in the UK for the third time as a co-headline billing, the previous 2017 tour saw sold out shows in the Green Note (London) as well as in Exeter, Launceston, Aberdeen and Glasgow. Expect dynamic, spirited performances and unique on-stage collaborations.
