Tough Old Bird was formed by songwriting brothers Matthew and Nathan Corrigan in a rural corner of Western New York. Since releasing ‘Gambling Days’ in 2016, the duo has taken their singular style of modern folk music to coffee shops, listening rooms, music clubs, dive bars, campgrounds and front porches across the United States. Their most recent full-length LP, ‘The Old Great Lakes’ found the band expanding their horizons beyond traditional folk music to encompass the battered shoreline of the Rust Belt and the inner lives of those who call it home.
In 2021, Tough Old Bird released a new EP, ‘A Mantle for the Lantern.’ Recorded at home in isolation during the previous year, Tough Old Bird’s latest music merges new and old sounds while exploring themes of memory, isolation and loss; all with a hopeful eye toward the future.
