Both inspired by the music of the 60s’ and 70’s, Tom Scott and Leslie Tift have been performing together for about 11 years. With songs from the 1800’s to present day, they play a combination of blues, country blues, folk, jazz, swing and originals. Tom performs on guitar, mandolin, and vocals while Leslie  performs on guitar, vocals and dobro. According to Leslie, ” We are honored to  be sharing the stage with Vic and Allison and are looking forward to a fun-filled evening of music.”
Allison Scull and Victor Martin blend roots music with a fusion of jazz, folk, blues, a little funk, originals and some jazz standards laced with some French lyrics. Victor performs on saxophone and vocals, and Allison performs on guitar and vocals. In regards to this first time concert, Victor conveys “I am honored to share a show with Leslie and Scott, who are such great musicians. Allison adds, “We have never done this before with them and are looking forward to what our collaboration will bring”

Tues May 30 – Bluegrass Music plus Dinner

Screen Shot 2017-05-26 at 4.03.19 PMPops Performing Arts & Cultural Center is pleased to host the Page Turners on their West Coast tour of their new CD. The show will be at Pops on Tuesday May 30 at 7 pm, and the entrance fee will be $7. Box Dinners will be available if you order by Sunday 10 am. See below.

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. They became musical friends as students of Berklee College of Music, and started playing together  through the Berklee American Roots Program. From those experiences, they began to play music together more and grew from goofy friends who loved BBQ and bluegrass, into goofy band mates as well. The Page Turners write sharp and adept original music and put new twists on old favorites. They like to blend their love of bluegrass, whiskey-fueled old-time, country music, swing, and fearless song-writing into one all-purpose seasoning of good ole’ fashioned Roots Music.
