Bluegrass and old time duets
Husband and wife duo Corrina Rose Logston and Jeremy Stephens are 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 classic bluegrass tunes and their own original material, Corrina and Jeremy perform the ballads of bygone days with a haunting authenticity that belies their age. Both are accomplished musicians, each winning multiple instrument contests and performing throughout the country. While still a teenager in his hometown of Danville, Virginia, Jeremy apprenticed under Kinney Rorrer, a master of the Charlie Poole three-finger style banjo, in the Virginia Folklife Apprenticeship Program. Since then, Jeremy has worked as guitarist and singer for the legendary gospel group The Chuck Wagon Gang, as a multi-instrumentalist on the television show Ray Stevens’ Nashville, and most recently as banjo player and singer with Jesse McReynolds & the Virginia Boys. In addition to his fine playing, Jeremy remains a true student and historian of old-time, bluegrass, and country music. Corrina, originally from southwestern Illinois, has worked as fiddler and singer with a cadre of traditionally influenced bluegrass performers, including David Peterson & 1946, Jesse McReynolds & the Virginia Boys, Chris Henry & the Hardcore Grass, and Jim Lauderdale. Drawn together by their mutual love for duets, especially the lesser known names in traditional bluegrass and hillbilly music, Corrina and Jeremy have been likened to Reno and Smiley, the Louvin Brothers, and Lulu Belle and Scotty. When they are not performing together as a duo, they front their own traditional bluegrass band, High Fidelity.
