Soon after meeting in 2005, Paul Tasker and Iona Macdonald started playing music together. Iona describes their musical meeting of minds as “a happy accident.” “We were a couple first and very quickly realised that we were compatible musically too. We’re both traditionalists, but not in the traditional sense. We look at music through the same eyes and find beauty in the musical moments that defy definition. Perhaps that’s why we often find our own sound difficult to define.”
The unique sound of Doghouse Roses lies in the threads that connect British folk music and Americana. Their latest album, This Broken Key, Released in November 2010, was supported by the Scottish Arts Council, and demonstrates the stark beauty of acoustic minimalism with the richness of a rhythm section.
Doghouse Roses play wonderful concerts, that you definitely shouldn’t miss!
