Focal Point Friends of Old-Time Music welcomes back Corrina Rose Logston & Jeremey Stephens (aka The Stephens Brothers)

March 22 @ 8:00 pm

$25 – $30

Corrina Rose Logston and Jeremy Stephens are a duo heavily steeped in the sounds of traditional bluegrass and early country music. From heart songs and brother duets of the early Grand Ole Opry era to lively bluegrass tunes and their own original material, their show is sure to keep you entertained. Corrina and Jeremy perform the ballads of bygone days with a haunting authenticity that belies their age, yet they simultaneously breathe new life into the old songs. Their performance blends past and present in a compelling combination of familiar and unique.

Both Corrina and Jeremy have strong individual musical pedigrees. Jeremy, an award winning banjo player from south central Virginia, has worked with the Lilly Brothers, played guitar and sang the legendary gospel group, the Chuck Wagon Gang, and played a variety of instruments on the TV show Ray Stevens’ Nashville. He is a true student of old-time, bluegrass, and country music and has won banjo contests all across the country. Corrina, a champion contest fiddle player from southwestern Illinois, has worked as fiddler and singer with a number of tradition-based bluegrass performers, including David Peterson & 1946, Chris Henry & the Hardcore Grass, and Jim Lauderdale.

Drawn together by their mutual love of brother duets, especially the lesser known names in traditional bluegrass and hillbilly music, Corrina and Jeremy have been likened to Reno & Smiley, the Louvin Brothers, and Lulu Belle & Scotty. Their vocal blend and harmony have led to them being dubbed “The Stephens Brothers,” when in fact these only-children are only “kin” through their marriage to one another.

When not touring as a duo, the two can be found performing around the country with their critically-acclaimed bluegrass band High Fidelity. They currently reside in Nashville, Tennessee.
