About Doghouse Roses

Hot on the heels of the release of their fourth album, ‘We Are Made Of Light’, the duo of Iona Macdonald on vocals and Paul Tasker on guitars, banjo and harmony vocals will be out to delight audiences across Europe this autumn.

The album has been nurtured over time and is a collection of songs, some new, others written over the band’s 15 years together but previously unrecorded and grew out of the duo’s touring set lists in 2018

Whether regularly gracing the stage of the Celtic Connections Festival at home in Glasgow or winning over an audience in an East German roadhouse, Tasker and Macdonald are exhilarating live musicians who bring their love of creating music to the fore every time they appear – and audiences will have the chance to see why they are considered one of the UK’s foremost folk based pairings this October.

Tasker and Macdonald met in 2005 and very quickly after started playing music together. Both were drawn to the fusion music of the Pentangle and Gillian Welch, as well as songwriters like Jackie Leven and Natalie Merchant.

The duo find themselves as at home playing folk festivals as they do rock clubs and have honed their sound playing hundreds of gigs all over Europe and the UK. In the 13 years since the seeds of Doghouse Roses were sown, the duo were invite to become members of the Willard Grant Conspiracy, touring with the collective in Europe for 3 years and have also opened a number of gigs for US cult outfit Television on their recent UK tours.

All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
