A DYNAMIC Americana duo, who have married their love of adventure with a desire to build on foundations laid by their musical predecessors, are heading to Dorset with their band this spring for a four-date tour with Artsreach.

Their tour of rural Dorset will include a night in Milborne St Andrew near Dorchester on Sunday, February 25.

Alyssa and Doug Graham have spent nearly their entire lives exploring music together. Growing up as friends in Nashville, Tennessee, they became a couple in their teens, then husband and wife.

Somewhere along the way, they also became The Grahams, a folk-rock duo who blend deeply personal, emotive and powerful lyrics with beautiful harmonies.

Their first song-crafting expedition along the Mississippi's Great River Road became their 2013 debut album, Riverman's Daughter.

For its follow-up, they rode the rails and wound up recording not only a studio album, but a documentary and live album Rattle the Hocks on the move and in venues from Sun Studio to Amtrak's famed City of New Orleans train.

Expect an evening of beautifully authentic Americana folk music as The Grahams land in Dorset as a four piece band.

See The Grahams in Drimpton (01308 867442) at 7.30pm on Thursday, February 22, Ashmore (01747 811364) on Friday February 23, Hinton Martel (01258 840066) at 7.30pm on Saturday, February 24 and Milborne St Andrew (01258 839230) at 7.30pm on Sunday, February 25.
