About the Band
The Page Turners, Carolyn Kendrick and Jake Howard, are an award-winning group (2016 Freshgrass Best Duo) who have a strong foothold in the acoustic music scene. Their partnership began as musical friends at Berklee College of Music, and they started playing together through a mutual admiration for musical authenticity and adventurousness. The Page Turners write sharp and adept original music, as well as put new twists on old favorites. All together, they blend their love of bluegrass, whiskey-fueled old-time, country, swing, and fearless song-writing into one all-purpose seasoning of good ole' fashioned roots music. Although a duo at heart, the Page Turners have had the opportunity to extend themselves. and oftentimes play with friends who have become honorary Turn-ees. Now on tour nationally, their debut album is available and you can catch them where they turn the page next.
"The Page Turners harness the best and deepest parts of bluegrass and old-time sounds as their own unique springboard for some wonderful new music. I love what Carolyn and Jake are doing and can’t wait to hear more!”
"Whether performing originals, or classics by Bob Dylan, Lead Belly, or Bill Monroe, The Page Turners never fail to bring a smile. Often poignant, occasionally humorous, always tasteful and soulful, Jake and Carolyn's fresh interpretations will have your feet tapping, your heart aching, and your spirit laughing. -A live show is not to be missed!"
-- David Wallace, D.M.A
"The Page Turners are one of the most exciting young groups to pop up in a long while. Two fantastic players and singers who, together, blow away the typical constraints of a duo and in the variety of their playing, writing and singing create a sound much greater than the sum of the (very talented) parts."
--Joe K. Walsh
