Red Hook: Tumbling Bones Brings Their Folk Sound To Brooklyn

Tumbling Bones is an ensemble of young men inspired by old music. Drawing on bluegrass, pre-war folk, and a bit of the contemporary rock ‘n’ roll the guys were reared on, they make their music with nothing but acoustic instruments, tap-shoes, and—most of all—their voices.

The trio was founded as a roots group with singing as the centerpiece and arrangements inspired by bluegrass gospel, jug band music, and classic R&B.

They just released their debut full-length album Loving a Fool, a collection of original songs and traditional numbers.

Tumbling Bones will perform at Jalopy Theatre on Friday, July 20th.
